Developing midline control

Kick up into a handstand. Keeping your toes pointed, and legs extended, slowly and deliberately lower your legs until your toes are just touching the ground. Without losing the contraction, or stability of the midline, raise your legs back into the starting position. Hips and lower back maintain contact with the wall at all times.

We used a stack of gymnastics mats to show a simple method of progression. As you develop control of this movement, you can remove a mat from the stack.
