If you’ve worked on handstands you know that there is no shortage of aspects to improve... Myles Tainsh breaks down some of these areas into more manageable handstand tips.
There are many ways that you can vary the form of the standard pull-up. In this post we shall explore some of these options and offer the benefits and drawbacks to each variation.
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.
The first progression after full push-ups towards the handstand push-up, is the decline push-up. By elevating your feet, more weight will go through the upper body, which will condition your body ready for the next progression.
The first progression after full push-ups towards the one arm push-up is the close hand push-up. By moving your hands closer together, it puts more emphasis on your triceps, which will need to grow stronger in order to perform a one arm push-up.
