Not the first time we see Handstand Push Ups here. Yuan Chengfei and Zhang Jie busting out a couple of sets of Handstand Push ups in the Asian Championships training hall. More: Here is the weighted version with 40kg strapped to their backs.
Keep it interesting and mix it up. Update 26.08.2014: This Obstacle course takes the cake. Post by Strength Project. Update 27.06.2014: David Durante goes through a pretty long Handstand obstacle course that even includes Handstand Push Ups. PS: Also check out Dave’s “Bring Sally Up” with Handstand Push Ups. Update: Here is David’s Handstand Walk […]
(Originally posted November 19th, Update below) Meanwhile in Spain … Gymnast Nestor Abad has a nice video of his everyday work. This montage shows a couple of nice exercises for handstands and core exercises. Those of you who have been following ATG since the beginning know how much I appreciate gymnastic skills. Gotta admire how warm […]
Gymnast Dave Durante, whom you may remember from the Handstand Push Up Exercises, attempts the Bring Sally Up Challenge with freestanding Handstand (Headstand) Push Ups! He got very close to making it, missing only the last two of the 30 reps. Maybe Youval Ayalon sees this and also gives it a go.
Remember Yuval Ayalon and his 20 rep Handstand Complex? He set himself the goal to do 40 consecutive reps consisting of: 10x Stalder Presses 10x HeSPU 10x Pike Presses 10x Straddle Presses Pure Madness. I can’t even hold a 4 minute Handstand these days. Update 04.09.2014: Yuval built up to a 10 minute Handstand Balancing […]
Looks like CrossFit HQ wants people to learn proper Handstand Push ups (i.e. non kipping). For this they made a video series with top gymnast Dave Durante (part 1 here). I used to do this particular exercise, the Jackknife (or Pike Up) with physio ball, a lot when I trained for my Press to Handstand. It really […]
Yuval Ayalon (remember his last Handstand Complex?) performs another beastly Handstand workout. He calls this the “20 set” and performs it twice. 5x Stalder Presses (Straddle L Press to HS) 5x Headstand Push Ups (HeSPU) 5x Pike Presses 5x Straddle Press 1 lbs ankle weights on each foot 2 minute rest in between sets Note his […]
Time for some Handstand inspiration. Yuval Ayalon performs a Handstand Complex. Tuck to Straddle (this is where I stopped) to Pike Press. Shoulders open. Perfect alignment. Progressions Since most of us won’t be able to do this here are some progressions. Back against a wall. In the beginning tuck up and pike / straddle down. Later […]
See, the Chinese are not the only ones doing handstands. In addition to his Overhead Press Dmitry also banged out a couple Handstand Push ups (a.k.a Earth Pushes, as a youtuber called them) today. Full ROM and not the headstand version which seems to be very popular in crossfit WODs these days. Youtuber drarara translated […]
