Handstand Push Up Skill Work
Level 1: 15-20 Strict Push ups
-Work on mastering a Push up w/ no band/knees
Level 2: Handstand hold/walk ups
– Comfortably hold yourself inverted for 60 seconds.
– Hand Stand Walk ups: Start in standing pike position. Walk hands one hand length at a time with straight arms until your body is extended with hands forward of your head. Repeat the process in reverse until back in the pike starting position. 10 walk-ups is a good starting point. be able to do 2 or 3 sets of this before moving to the next progression.
Level 3: Partial range hspu
– Handstand position and practice lowing until just before you lose control and press out of that… 15 reps
Level 4: Working on Kipping HSPU/Stringing together 5-10 Reps
– Work on Bringing the knees down/Butt against the wall and driving those legs up
– Stringing 5-10 reps at a time
Level 5: Added range of motion
-Now that you have 10 hspu’s under you belt start adding range of motion, generally an inch at a time is a lot to work with.
– Use plates
Level 6: HSPU’s with bands
– Using a Light Band and a partner to help get bands in place
– Do not attempt unless you are comfortable doing atleast 10 HSPU at a time
– The bands will add tension through the entire body and force the athlete to press faster than normal HSPU’s
