Hi
I am coaching a level 7 gymnast at the moment - she's having major difficulty with her cast straddle handstand. She is very strong, she is tall 5ft4 very muscular build.

Has a fear of falling over the bar if she puts her shoulders too far forward and can't get the hips up high enough to complet the straddle up.

Any drills or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. She needs the skill to pass her level!!!

Thank you in advance.
