I reinforced the stand and stay with my hand under his flank to keep him upright and from moving forward. Now I just say 'wait' rather than stay

Yeah that's what I did with Bianca, also starting with a very short duration like having her stay still for just a few seconds at first and then slowly increasing that.

You can very very gently put the toe at the flank while in a sit or a down and the dog will pop right up because they've been goosed in a sense. Do that while you say stand then use your hand to reinforce the stand and stay. You can also use a treat to lure into the stand

I've been training with a few people who will push the dog backwards if they step. This is after the dog understands stand/stay means stand and do not move. They put a treat on the nose, take the collar and make the dog go back a few steps then command stay. If the dog moves it is done again. It is a default behavior to go forward, so they are using 'back'.
I don't train in the AKC ring so don't know if this is the norm...but these are competition obedience trainers and this is how they are working it.

Does your dog know "stay" in other positions? If so then all you need to teach is "Stand".

Also have you taught your dog that "Stay" is always part of the Sit or Down commands? or do you give a separate Stay after telling them Sit or Down?

That would also make a small difference in teaching the stand stay.

Also2, if you want a "Stack" as your stand then you will need to teach the dog how to "walk" into one (after they know what Stay means.

It is pretty easy to get them to learn to take one paw step at a time until they stack themselves when you have a dog who knows stay and is relatively calm and will walk forward a step at a time.

I lured her into a stand. I held my hand up, palm down, and told her touch. She would jump to touch my hand and when she was solidly standing, I said 'Stand'.

Yeah I forgot to mention that part, I used a nose touch (targeting my hand) to get her to stand up, and reward for staying in the stand position for short durations at first.

This is a good video about how you can build up the stand stay:
