Handstand Pushup

Pre-requisite Skills



Micro kips for easier handstand pushups wiithout sacrificing form

Handstand pushups (hspu) are a tough skill to learn because of the strength and balance requirements. To make learning the hspu easier, we review how to best leverage a kip without going full banana. Using this technique can let you get used to the mechanics and get dynamics reps into your workout while you develop the strength to go full range without a kip. Note, this kip is different than a crossfit kip and a breakdance kip which both aim upwards and tend to have a lot of momentum. This kip is more of a minimal way to gain upward momentum and send the balance over the hands while maintaining form. More tutorials on IG:
