Exercise Performance
Kick up into a handstand against a sturdy wall. As usual, your arms should be shoulder width apart and your fingers should be six to ten inches from the wall with only your feet touching the surface. This will leave a slight natural curve in your body. As with Half One-arm Push-up, slowly transfer the majority of your weight-approximately ninety percent-onto one palm. Now flip your other palm over, so that the back of hand is flat on the floor with the fingers pointing away from you. Straighten out your arm in front of you, maintaining contact with the floor as you go. Some pressure should still be flowing through the digits of this hand. Keeping the arm of the upturned hand extended, bend at the shoulder and elbow of your other arm, with full muscular control. Pause as the top of your skull softly touches the floor. Now, press back up to the start position, pushing through your palm and the back of your hand simultaneously.
