How should I place my hands for the planche?

This is one question that I get ask very often. And I’m going to answer on this short post.
I have probably mention this in previous post, so I apologize if I’m repeating myself here. The way I see it is that you should place your hands in wish ever position you find it easier and more comfortable.
Also it have got a lot to do with the health and flexibility of your wrist. For example, I have fracture my left wrist in the past and after I recover I was force to readjust my hand position. I remember trying different angles until I found one that was comfortable. You have probably notice that in 98% of my videos doing planche, I do it on the bottom of my finger pad. Before the injury I used to do it flat hand and with finger pointing forward. In the picture above I show the most commune ways of placing your hand. The bottom line is..You should play around until you find what work best for you. However in future post I’ll tell you about the benefits of placing your fingers forward.
