Pike Push-ups

By |2018-05-22T21:11:43+00:00April 26th, 2015|Deltoid, Handstand Push-ups, Triceps, Tutorial|

The next progression after decline push-ups towards the handstand push-up, is the pike push-up. In this exercise, we move the arms so that they are in a vertical pressing position, rather than the horizontal pressing position used in push-ups. To make it easier than a handstand push-up, we simply put some weight through the legs.
