Handstand push-ups are a fun way to build upper body and core strength! Want to give them a try but don’t know where to start? Here are some progressions for ya!
Box handstand push-ups:
Focus on bringing your shoulders over your wrist before you start. You should have your head and hands in the tripod position before bending your elbows.
Strict handstand push-ups with an ab mat:
Kick up into your handstand, making sure to hold your core in really tight. Keep legs straight and squeezed together. Lower until your head touches the mat then press up.
*ONCE YOU ARE ABLE TO MASTER THESE THEN YOU CAN PROGRESS TO A KIPPING HANDSTAND PUSH-UP. If you go straight to kipping without sufficient upper body strength and control you risk injury, not worth it!
Kipping handstand push-ups:
As you lower into your handstand bring your knees down towards your elbows. Keep squeezing your core so you don’t topple over. Explode with your legs to help pull yourself up.
