How far apart are your hands from each other?
Every time I do Handstand push ups I feel my hands are at different lengths away from each other? What distance would you say roughly should be between your hands that is best for shoulder development?

too close = mostly tricpe so try to have at least shoulder width but mine are a little wider than shoulder width

HSPU's cause the capillaries around my eyes to darken for 2-3 days after exercising - this is very concerning for me as I have fair skin & light eyes - just wanted to share this thx.

Man, you are a beast!

I have been doing HSPUs for 3 months. I could not see any result on my shoulder. Why is that?

October 02, 2011

Adrian Bryant

where you doing full range HPUS using platform boxes and where you hands close to the wall?

October 02, 2011


Outstanding video tutorial, Adrian!

My question: You do your handstand pushups facing the wall. Is there a reason or an advantage to doing them facing the wall, as opposed to doing them with your back against the wall? Does it matter?


September 28, 2011

Adrian Bryant

It doesn't matter I just feel more comfortable doing it that way and doing it the other way may be easier b/c you don't have to walk your hands back up on the wall

Hand stand push ups make me fart all day when I do them after breakfast. I am now doing 2 extra sets because I love the smell so much..... Thanks for bringing this perfect odor to my life.

PS: My wife loves it too!!

In the past i have always done HSPUs with my back to the wall, but my back arches too much. So i just started doin them with stomach to the wall like you. Question is - how close are your hands to the wall? like 6 inches away? or a foot away? I cant seem to get a comfortable distance. Just curious what distance you use. Thanks

September 18, 2011

Adrian Bryant

My hands are less than 6 inches away from the wall but as you get more comfortable you can get closer
