Handstand facing wall Guide


Wall facing handstands can be performed at a number of angles, the close you are to the wall, the more difficult the move. Walk your hands closer and closer to the wall the more comfortable you become with the movement.


There are two methods for getting into a wall facing handstand position:

Method 1:

  • Wall walk into position

Method 2:

  • Stand about 1 foot away from the wall, facing the wall
  • Slowly perform a cartwheel but stop halfway so you are in an inverted position
  • Reposition your hands as necessary into the wall facing handstand
Key points
  • Once you are in the handstand position, focus on keeping your arms in line with your body, pushing your chest towards the wall will help open your shoulders
  • Keep your arms straight and your body in a hollow position
