About this program

The straddle press is an advanced exercise that involves moving up from a straddle plank position to a handstand position, without bending your arms or arching your back.

Must know

  • With this method we will learn to do the straddle press first by flexing the arms and then in the strict form.

  • The program is designed to be done twice a week, with an extra routine in case you want to do a third session.

  • Being strength routines, with few repetitions, we recommend taking long breaks, between 2' and 3', in which you fully recover, especially in the first exercises.


Before you start this plan, make sure you have some mastery of the straddle plank, at least 5 seconds, if not, you can use the straddle plank program to achieve it.

Necessary material

Parallel bars. We recommend having push ups or mini parallel grips as well, but it is not required.
