How to Do Handstand Push Ups in Strict Form

The handstand push ups in strict form should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the handstand push ups in strict form.


Beginning Handstand Push Ups in Strict Form

1. Place your hands 6-12 inches apart from the wall, somewhat wider than shoulder width apart.

2. Make sure your palms are facing forward or turned slightly out 5-10 degrees.

1. Kick up into a handstand and place your heels against the wall. If you're having difficulties getting into a handstand, try this donkey kick workout.

2. Establish a solid, tight midline position once you've kicked up. (See photo above)

3. Lower yourself till the top of your head meets the floor/mat while keeping this position. As you lower, try to retain your elbows at a 45-degree angle.

4. When your head lands on the floor, press up with the same amount of tension you used to lower yourself until your elbows are fully extended.
