Back-swing into Handstand

I've recently been playing around on the parallel bars on days where my elbows need a rest from the rings. I recently managed to achieve the back-swing into handstand in the gym. Yesterday, I found myself training a friend at the outdoor training area in Primrose Hill, London and thought I'd attempt it on the P-bars there.

I expected to be intimidated to go up into handstand without being completely surrounded by crash mats as I've become accustomed to... in fact it felt completely natural.

Sorry about the video quality, it was taken on a phone.


  1. The control going into and out of the handstand is impressive. Well done Rich! (Will be brushing up my camerawork/commentary in future!)

  2. Nice!
    Won't be long before you do it from a planche now ;)
    Keep up the good work!
