John Smith from NASA has a list of 52 exercises using furniture moving sliders to physically prepare Artistic gymnasts.
Here’s a good one. Handstand on one slider, spot pirouette. Then full pirouette. Gymnast tries to torque with the hands.

A new one recently posted by By Chris Salvato – Deconstructing the One Arm Handstand.
And an older one on Beast Skills – One Arm Handstand Lessons From a Chinese Acrobat.
If you want to train that skill, get help from a circus or Acrobatic Gymnastics expert. They’re better at 1-arm handstands than we are at 2-arm.
Leave a comment if you have other good resources for 1-arm hand.
