chakrasana  
Anyone out there over 270 doing chakrasana? How about headstands/shoulderstands? Camel pose complete with gripping the heel? How do you get into them?

Thank you!

That's pretty much the process I use to get into chakrasana. For what it's worth, I have always been able to do backbends so I have good flexibility for it naturally. I was doing is at 305, although I'm currently under your targeted weight range.

I do shoulderstands, haven't tried headstands. I do recall having difficulty with shoulderstands at my highest weight.

Camel is no issue either, but same note as above. It might help to use your hands to move your back flesh around, if you can stay in a backbend while doing it. I imagine leaning back, using the right hand to move the left back flesh, then kinda doing the same to the other side. Maybe?

Hope that helps.
