Wow, if you want a good shoulder workout here is what has made mine insanely sore.

From L-sit move through to press to a handstand.

I did three of these yesterday and can hardly rotate my shoulders without grimacing.

Cheers Michael.

I tried this a couple of times after I read your post elsewhere describing your breakthrough with the press to handstand.

Did it a couple of times (bent armed) on the parallettes; but I overbalanced the 3rd time and came crashing down. My full bodyweight smashed my right ear into one of the parallettes; hurt much more than my shoulders... :blush:

You're right though; I find that moving from various positions through to others on the parallettes gives the shoulders a really good workout. L-sit to tuck-sit to L-sit to tuck planche to handstand etc...

I have the same problem on the second try I went over as well, hit the wall the wife came in wondering what new weirdness I was up to. Luckly I haven't burned in yet but I haven't done today's workout so there is still time.

Here's a set when you guys get your presses down.

L (or V or Manna) hold for 3
press handstand
3 HSPU
lower to straddle L hold for 3
press handstand
3 HSPU
lower to L hold for 12

This can be modified further by converting the pressese to planch press as well as other variations. Have fun!

Roger,

What an outstanding series of movements. Of course, I can't even press to handstand yet but it's nice to have something to look forward to.

Thanks,

Mike

That sounds like a great set. I look forward to trying it. I just have to get my HSPU down, still don't have the balance and keep falling over backwards from the press.
