How To Do A Frogstand

The frog stand is a beginners gymnastic and yoga position designed to develop strength with particular focus on balance skills. With planche leans: An indirect progression would be how to do frog stand to do planche leans (something like 3-5 sets limited always to 10-12sec holds) and as your ability to lean improves, when you try a crow pose with straight arms (or maybe even a tuck planche, if you have the hip mobility for it) you'll find yourself able to hold it. From a standing position, slowly rise up on to how to do a frog stand the toes, keeping the knees straight and heels off the floor. Place your hands at your sides and lift your entire body off the ground while keeping your legs out straight in front of you. For example, a hanging straight leg lift is much harder than a tucked leg lift.

The irony of planche training is that these movements are actually easier than the straight arm planche hold itself. Planch Push ups are hypothetically easier as the bent arm position is easier to hold. Try beginning from a tuck L sit on parallel bars, with straight arms extend yourself back to the tuck planche, get used to keeping the arms completely locked out and you'll train the straight arm strength sufficiently.

For someone who just hit their first handstand, you only need to be concerned with the Frog Stand to Handstand - and that means making only one small change to your daily routine. In each training session, you just need to make one small change to move towards the Frog Stand to Handstand Press. I tested the idea out first on my son, Joseph, a dentist, by mailing him a frog.



I'll probably only be able to hold it for 3-10 seconds, even though I can hold the Frog Stand for 60 seconds. The tuck planche is WAY different than the frog stand, although the frog definitely helped set the foundation for the tuck. I know this seems a little bit crazy, but before I posted this I had tuck planche in under 2 weeks, though not the advanced version. In engineering terms when your arms are straight the elbow becomes a moment connection. The routine starts with you standing straight with one leg forward and the other backward.

Being able to do a 60s frog stand may not mean anything in moving towards the tuck planche. That is you need to be at a reasonably advanced level (in particular with respect to wrist strength, flexibility and shoulder strength) to event attempt the movement. This is not a bent arm variant and we're not going to go through those today as they're not as applicable. By dropping them slightly you can increase the level of flex and decrease the torques in the movement (smaller lever arm). There is also an intermediate position between the frog stand and the tuck planche.
