Freestanding Handstand Push Up: Step 1 – How to Perform the Freestanding Handstand Push Up?
Step 1 is very simple. You have to start with your feet together. Then you need to put your hands behind your head and place them on top of each other. Now you are ready for step 2!
How To Perform The Wall Hand Stand Push Up Step 2 – How To Do The Wall Hand Stand Push Up?
Wall hand stand push ups are performed in the same way as freestanding handstand push ups. However, you will perform it from a wall instead of a ceiling. The reason why you would do it from a wall is because if you were doing it from the floor, then your body would not be stable enough to support yourself properly and you could fall down due to lack of balance.
The Wall Hand Stand Push Up Program
If you want to progress further in the wall handstand push up, then you need to follow the steps below. There are many different ways of performing these steps. Some people prefer one method over another while others like all of them. So choose whichever one suits your style best.
The steps are as follows:
Get yourself into a handstand position against a wall. Stay in this position for around 30 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds before doing it again. Do this 10 times. If you can do it 10 times without falling over or putting your feet down onto the floor, then move onto step 2.
If you have to put your feet down, then repeat the process until you can do it 10 times in a row. After doing this 10 times, take a 1-minute break, then repeat steps 1 and 2 five more times. Once you have completed this, move onto step 3.
The 7 Step Handstand Push Up Progression Method
This method is perfect for those of you out there who want to increase your strength quickly. It is a little more challenging than the previous one, but it is very effective if done properly. Here are the steps:
Stand close to a wall with your hands against it. Place your feet a little more than hip-width apart. Lean forward and place your palms on the floor directly in front of your feet. Make sure that your arms are fully extended at this point in time.
Kick your feet up so that they are both above your hands. Your body should form an ‘L’ shape at this point in time. Slowly drop down a little bit at a time. Go down until you feel like you are going to fall over. Use your hands and arms to catch yourself if needed. Once you are stable, hold this position for as long as you can. Make sure that your back is as straight as possible during this process. After holding this position for as long as you can, slowly rise up to the starting position
This is one repetition. Do 5 of these. After you complete the 5th repetition, take a 1-minute break, and then do 4 more repetitions. After you finish these 4 repetitions, take a 3-minute break before going onto step 2.
Step 2 is exactly like step 1, except this time you will be doing handstand holds instead of handstand pushes. Follow the same routine as in step 1 except this time you will only be doing one repetition and you will be resting for 3 minutes between each one.
Step 3 is exactly like step 1 except this time you will be doing the whole routine every other day instead of every day. After a month of doing this, move onto step 4.
Step 4 is exactly like step 1 except this time you will be going all the way down and back up. Do this 2 times, and then take a 3-minute break before repeating. After you complete this, take a 5-minute break before going onto step 5.
Step 5 is exactly like step 1 except this time you will be going down all the way and holding the bottom position for as long as you can. Once you can no longer hold it for 30 seconds, you move onto the next step.
Step 5 is exactly like step 4 except this time instead of going down and back up, you will be going all the way down and holding the bottom position for as long as you can. Once you can no longer hold it for 1 minute, take a 5-minute break before moving onto step 6.
Step 6 is identical to step 5 except this time your goal will be to go down and hold the bottom position for 60 seconds. Do this 2 times per day, and then after a month of doing this, you’re done.
Once you get to this point, your handstand should be strong enough to perform the rest of the exercises in this book. Now you can move on to part 3: learning new tricks!
