The Wall Straddle Press begins by placing the palms on the ground fingers pointed slightly outward several inches away from the wall. As your drop your head and lean forward until your shoulders make contact will the wall. After getting inverted spread your legs as far as they are able and begin to hinge through the hips. Note this is through the hips and not the spine for the first part of the straddle. Keep them as wide as possible so that you can maintain your balance. As you progress, strongly contract your core while beginning to let the lower back slip off the wall. You must strongly pull with your hips and spine so that you can stay upright. Only go so far as you’re able to maintain control.
