How To Scale the Handstand Push-up

If you have strict HSPUs down, congrats and sorry! Congrats because this is a challenging movement for many and the fact that you are able to do them RX is the result of a lot of work on your part. Well done! Sorry because this post isn’t for you. It may have been for you back when you were getting started, but not anymore! For those of you still working on HSPUs, understand that getting this movement down, especially the strict version, doesn’t happen over night. Like many gymnastics movements we see, the HSPU requires a compliment of both strength and skill. Below are some scaling options we use, They are progressive, where you can start with one and work your way to the next. They are selected because they don’t just get your through the workout, they help you improve certain components of the movement so that you are getting closer and closer to being able to do a true HSPU. Take a look and think about what one you’ll do today!!
