About this pack

In free-standing handstand push-ups, the core muscles and hand muscles are both used to keep the body balanced, from falling over back, forward, or to either side, and to maintain posture. This makes it a much stronger exercise for the wrist flexors, core and legs compared to regular push-ups.

Benefits

Strengthen the Abdomen and Midsection

Improve muscle stability

Strengthens the Upper Body.

Learn Handstand Push-ups

Handstand push-ups are also called vertical push-ups or inverted push-ups and are a type of exercise where the body is in a handstand position. While traditional push-ups require the body to be positioned parallel to the floor, these upside-down push-ups, sometimes referred to as headstand push-ups are far more challenging and require greater balance and coordination to execute and perform. It is an excellent workout for the core muscles as well as the arms and the legs and greatly improves balance, strength and endurance.

The second session ups the intensity of the workouts with the Side to Side Shuffle and the Pike Push-up exercises that are excellent for lower body strength and balance and the shoulders respectively.

Workout Structure

Each of the above sessions consists of a wide range of exercises that are designed to carefully prepare your body to execute a perfect headstand push up. The sessions include endurance and strength training exercises such as glute bridges, squats, push-ups and planks that help the body get stronger and fitter. The arm balance exercises greatly improve your balance, agility and stability which are all crucial if you want to do a handstand push-up. The workouts slowly lead up to wall handstand push-ups to allow for external support to avoid injury in beginners and new learners.

Benefits

Handstand push-ups have several benefits to offer when compared to other traditional exercises. The muscles of the core and arms are trained a lot harder as they are constantly engaged in maintaining balance and preventing the body from falling over. This ensures stronger and better-toned muscles. The exercise also helps develop the back muscles as well as the legs that are also involved in executing each repetition. Some individuals may also experience relief from back pain and general joint pains if this exercise is done properly after consultation with a doctor. Since the body is in an upright position, the spine is also forced to straighten and this might help improve your posture.
