Here at Calisthenics Academy in Miami, Florida we had the pleasure of having coach Gabo walk us through how to handstand press with straight arms. This is pure dominance of the body. A very controlled movement that calls for a lot of core and shoulder strength. Watch the video for the full tutorial and keep the following key points in mind.
