The Handstand Push-Up is similar to a regular push up, but requires more balance and strength. It strengthens core, back and upper body muscles.

Steps[edit]

  1. Place palms on the floor and lean.
  2. Place the top of your head against the floor between your palms creating a triangle.
  3. Lean your body up until only your hands and head are touching the floor.
  4. Push your head off the floor until only your hands are holding you up.
  5. Keep yourself balanced while going down to the floor and pushing back up.
