Handstand Push Up Tutorial Step By Step – Learn to Kick Up and Get Confident Upside Down!

by eiga

Handstand Push Ups can be intimidating to learn, because kicking up and pressing while upside down is a very unnatural movement – especially when you’re not confident in your strength.

But just like the push up, you can progress step by step so that by the time you’re fully upside down, you feel confident that you can hold your weight, kick up to the wall, and protect your neck and upper body – even if these skills feel far away right now.

Give these progressions and accessory movements a try, stick with it, and tag me when you get your very first handstand push ups!
