Handstand Push- Up – Strict, Deficit

HOW: Begin with two plates on the ground up against a wall to perform the exercise in a deficit position. Start with your hands on the plates and push up into a handstand position with your heels against the wall. Slowly lower yourself down by bending your elbows until your head gently taps the ground and push up through your shoulders by straightening your elbows to return to the starting position. FEEL: You should feel your core, hips, back and shoulder muscles working to perform the handstand push-up motion. COMPENSATION:Do not excessively arch your back when performing this exercise. Keep your core engaged and heels against the wall for added stability. Be sure to master the strict handstand push-up before attempting this exercise.
