Handstands are a great exercise to get you practicing the bone on bone lockout you need while Jerking. They are also an easy exercise to strengthen your overhead stability. I do handstands at the beginning of training against a wall and push my head forward to stretch my wrists, upper back, and shoulders. Sometimes I will do handstands at the end of training. The inverted position circulates blood through the muscles of my upper body helping them heal. Hold each handstand no more than a minute.
Advanced Way: Handstands are already an advanced exercise
Duration: 5 minutes
Placement In Training: At the beginning and/or end of training
