Sam, yeah, greater trochanters.

I was definitely *not* given the arms to compensate, my small-ish hands aren't exactly a big help either.

Oh well, that's why I'm really only concerned with bettering myself.

On the anthropometry note, as of last night at my gymnastics session, I finally figured out that a straight-leg press to handstand will be much easier for me to do than a straddle ever will--my short legs need to be fully utilized to get my hips over my hands, in a straddle there is just no way!

I used to a press HS from pike stand as I found it easier because I could planche it and push out from there seeing as I had little control of hip flexors and could barely straddle L on floor.
