Handstand on a Chair - a tutorial


New member
On my blog, I just posted a tutorial for performing a handstand on a chair. I performed this regularly while on a gymnastics exhibition team a few years back and it still remains one of my favorite skills.

It helps if you have a press handstand down first, but I'll be posting up a press handstand tutorial in the near future for those who are working towards one.

Here's my blog with the tutorial:

Hope you enjoy!

Your blog rocks! I really like all the pictures and explanations. To me, bodyweight exercises like that are more impressive than gym lifts!

Awesome! That's something I want to learn eventually but I'm a way off. Can't wait for Coach Sommer's handstand book if it ever comes out!

Thanks everyone!

Thanks everyone. I'm just using the blog as a place where I can post up my general progression, exercises, and some tutorials when I have adequate expertise.

I'm hoping to post some short video clips in the near future, but I'll have to wrestle the work camera away from the office. I think some clips will help further clarify things.

Rifstonian - I haven't done any concentrated handstand training with steps. Although I have played around in some nice flat, wide steps at my University. Fun and brutal!
