Exercise of the Week

The Handstand Push Up

Handstand push up

How To: You can perform this exercise in 3 ways, with a partner spot, against a wall or free standing with no assistance.  Start off by kicking up to a handstand with hands shoulder width apart, arms straight and body in a straight hollow position.  Lower your head slowly to the ground as you bend your arms.  Once you reach the floor by touching your head begin the lift your head off the ground by driving through your arms and shoulders until you reach an extended handstand again.  If you are not able to perform the up motion of this exercise have a partner assist you by lifting at your legs.  This is a controlled exercise and never should you fall or put your entire body weight on your head and neck.
