Justin Challenge: Handstand rewind
Push off the wall towards the T mark like you’re going to do a handstand, but don’t; instead push on the ground so you launch back at the wall and hit it with your feet.

Make it harder! Do a flip before you push backwards, then push backwards with your hands to rewind.

Make it super harder. Hands on T mark, 1/2 a flip, then rewind with your hands on your back to the wall.
