Kip cast handstand

A value skill
Drills for Kip cast handstand.
  • A lot of cast handstands need to be worked so this part of the skill is not a struggle. In working cast handstand sets be sure to work cast to handstand, lower back to the bar, as the negative motion greatly helps develop strength.
  • The gymnast needs to finish the kip with their shoulders forward, and feet down so they can excecute the cast. If the gymnast is completely open upon completion of the kip there's no where to go for the cast.
