This is a helpful video with a few drills to develop a stable handstand hold. A few main points are:
- A bumper plate is a simple tool for the athlete holding a bumper plate held overhead. Squeeze the butt and bring down the rib cage with the abs; this drill also eliminates the excessive lower-back arch often seen in inverted athletes.
- Next, do a half wall walk and hold the body at a 45-degree angle to the floor. This position teaches you how to press into the floor, creating an active position characterized by straight elbows and midline stability.
- Once you're comfortable with the half-wall, progress to wall-facing handstands with only the toes touching the wall. Lastly, try to remove the toes from the wall to find balance in the strong support position.
