yeah i think i get scared when i feel too much pressure on my wrists. i tried training this one time by doing a handstand with stomach facing the wall, using my feet to gently push off, and then flexing my wrists hard to make my feet come back to the wall. i would do this for a few reps. are there other good ways to isolate this?

Hand position is not optimal. You want supinated (palms facing down) grip if you want to start working on crosses without blowing out your elbows.
yeah i generally try to supinate when i do these on rings. i was kinda being lazy this time since it was a straight bar. if i warm up for a while, i can get the same positions with a supinated grip.

i just checked out that fedec stuff. that's pretty legit. maybe i can talk my girlfriend into working the hand to hand balancing. probably not though
