How to Kick to a Handstand Against the Wall
Video by Travis Ewart

Gymnastics skills may be some of the most daunting movements in CrossFit. Learning how to scale movements to create a comforting learning environment instead of “either do it or don’t” is why we created Invictus Gymnastics, an online supplementary program to carry you from the bottom to the top!

Kicking to a handstand against the wall can be extremely challenging if you have never done it before! Handstands against the wall lead to so many benefits, from general strengthening for handstands or overhead work, working toward freestanding handstand holds, handstand push-ups, handstand walks and press to handstands.

If you are one of the many who fear that wall even more than you fear clowns in the park at night, this video is for you! Looking for more progressions for some of the more complicated Gymnastics movements? Check out our new Invictus Gymnastics Program!

I watched the video, tried it, and am still to scared to kick my foot to the wall. I become a different person on that damn box. 🙁

Before this video, I feared handstands more than clowns. Now, I fear handstands less than clowns. Thanks Invictus!
