Hand-Balancing – Strength Magazine – September, 1921

The next feat to accomplish is the “Elbow Stand,” or “Tiger’s Bend.” Now that you are able to push up to a hand stand and are able to make several repetitimis of the “dip,” instead of starting to push up to a full-arm balance after having gone down and touched the chin in the “dip,” just let your elbows drop as shown in Fig. 8 and you have the “Elbow Stand.”
