Just hit a great milestone for me, doing a set of 20 handstand pushups without break. Here’s the video:
Before the form police start commented, realize that I am doing these this way on purpose.
These were done in what I like to call “Easy” form. Most notably the hand position is wider than shoulder width which reduces the range of motion, though some other details distinguish this from “Medium” or “Hard” versions. All of these are done without changing the range of motion by raising the head up or the hands. Those are also great things to do, but different.
Lately, I’ve been aiming to hit sets of 20 in many exercises as a graduation benchmark on that. You can read more about this max set progression here.
Far more detail on how form changes the difficulty of handstand pushups, plus how I train this king of bodyweight exercise, can be found inside The Ultimate Guide to Handstand Pushups.
