Balance during Handstand pushups

Recommended Posts

Hi!

Do you need to have a good free standing handstand to perform handstand pushups?? Cause the two forms don't look the same.

A true handstand push up does have the same handstand form. You are probably thinking of the arch-back form.

People who are not strong enough in the overhead position tend to arch the back to shift the emphasis to their

more developed chest. In my opinion, it is not the same skill.   So the answer to your questions is yes, you do need

a soild free standing handstand to perform handstand pushups. Just as you do for Handstand pressing and just about every

other gymnastic skill!
