Handstand Pushups

Today’s workout offers a chance for you to work on your handstand pushup. There are few things to consider before jumping straight into kipping this movement, though. Can you slow lower yourself in control without crunching your head into the mat? Can you maintain midline stabilization throughout the kip and decent? If so, you are ready to start kipping, allowing for the possibility of more repetitions in a workout under fatigue, and therefor, increasing your power output!

If you don’t quite have the strength to control the slow lower or to maintain proper midlines stability throughout a kipping handstand pushup, you get to work on building strength today through strict pressing overhead. This is awesome, though! Don’t underestimate the power of building that absolute strength.

Either way, everyone can benefit from the tips in this video. Whether you will be repping out kipping handstand pushups today, or will get there soon after building the requisite strength, take a minute to watch this video for some great tips on the kipping handstand pushup from Laurie Galassi of CrossFit Santa Cruz.
