There are two types of people learning to do handstands: those who have fallen, and those who will fall.

In this new handstand tutorial, Dave Durante teaches you how to do pirouettes and forward rolls to help you bail out of a failing handstand safely and effectively — even gracefully! — in order to eliminate your fear of falling while you are learning to balance on your hands.

You can practice these easy drills while you are bored at home during the pandemic, and be the only person to return to your CrossFit gym with a brand new skill!

For more, check out our NEW Handstand Basics Course on our Power Monkey Academy. If you're interested in not only improving your handstand, but also becoming better at teaching and assessing handstands, this course is for you.

In Strength,
