In this stalder drill the aim is to land in a pancake position with the arms straight and shoulders pushing and stretching away from the bar.  Gymnast that have some personal difficulty with the pancake position need to develop better flexibilty to be able to perform great stalders.  During the stalder drill the gymnast should not rush to straddle right on the handstand  but planche down a little and then push away while moving into the pancake position.  Keeping good form in any training drill helps to establish long lasting excellent presentation habits.
