Form: When performing handstand push ups, make sure your upper body, your arms, and your head remain in a straight line.
Notes: Handstand push ups also help building up towards unsupported handstands. A strong core and strong shoulders will help you find your balance and maintain the position more easily.
Choose one of the following variations as a starting point and perform 3 sets of between 4 and 8 repetitions with periods of between 1 and 2 min of rest between each set. When you can do 3 sets of 8, move on to the next exercise in the progression.
For this version of the exercise, you will need to be facing away from the wall, rather than towards it.
Gradually build up the height of the platform to increase your range of motion.
