Spotting a Kick Up to Handstand


How to safely use a partner spotter to help kick up into a handstand.  This progression works great for people who are scared to kick up upside down or are still developing the shoulder strength to hold their body weight with locked out arms.  By holding on to the leg, the partner spotter takes some of the body weight off, and at the same time guiding the legs and hips into a proper position.

Once the individual is comfortable upside down with a spotter, they can usually begin to kick up against a wall or solo in free space.  Enjoy!
