#StrengthSundayMM : Stalder Press
A Stalder Press is where you start from a Straddle-L and press into a Handstand. It provides a load of straight arm pushing strength, balance, coordination and more over a VERY big range of motion in all in ONE movement. But should it be trained as one movement? We would say NO.
The Stalder is actually two movements in one movement. Training the entire movement as one movement could lead to stagnation and frustration.
A better option is to actually split it into two pieces: One, the press from the Straddle-L to the bottom of the press handstand and two, the actual press handstand part. Training these as TWO different skills will let you make more progress.
If you train them as one movement, the weak links of both will hold you back from making optimal gains. But if you train them separately, you can ensure that both parts of the Stalder are strong and eventually combine them into one full movement!
The exercises we use to do this are something we will go over in a future post! So stay tuned! But for now, when you chase the Stalder, make sure you chase both its individual parts so you can combine them into the whole.
There are several other movements that follow these rules as well! Want to know which ones? Check the IG stories! 😉💪
some extra work needed to clean this mess up 😅 random handstand sequence

Just a small straddle & close front lever
Time to reset the mind & focus again on the objectives
Quand on a trop de pression à l’intérieure il faut évacuer.. 💭
