Virtuosity with Dusty Hyland - Bent Arm Press to Handstand, Vol 2: Tuck Up With Plate

Dusty Hyland


Culver City, California, United States


Welcome to season three of Virtuosity, featuring gymnastics experts and coaches Dusty Hyland and Tina Angelotti. Virtuosity, in gymnastics, means going above and beyond - exceptional movement, performance, and position.


Season three is all about the bent arm press to handstand and this week, Dusty covers how to move from your tuck-sit or L-sit position to a tuck up. This will take you into a postion from where you will soon learn to break at the elbow and get upside down. This is a counterbalance movement that will require a base amount of strength, coordination, and a little spatial awareness. But don't worry if you are missing any of these things! The drills Dusty provides will help you to build them up.
