It’s become widely known that weight bearing ankle mobility is part of developing a full ranged, properly executed squat. Many people understand the common compensations that can develop such as limited depth, the knees rolling in, or lower back/hip soreness.

Considering this concept, the same parallels exists between weight bearing wrist mobility and a properly stacked handstand. Due to gymnastics and handstand training becoming more mainstream, more people are running into movement deficiencies and problems during handstands. To help people understand this concept and how to screen weight bearing wrist mobility, I put together this short video to help out. Hope it helps!
