Press handstand… oh how impossible you seem to achieve. Once I figured out a press handstand was actually attainable, I was hooked. When you realize that actual humans(more than just one superhuman) can actually do it, you start to ask: how? Where do I start? Are you an alien? IS that even humanly possible?
Well, it IS! With consistent practice, overtime you will be able to do it. You will want to make sure you can handstand first. It’s amazing to watch people press handstand.
