Re: Improve HSPU and Dips ??

I hardly ever do any handstand pushups or ring dips. I just do my weekly overhead pressing and bench pressing on 5/3/1 combined with the assistance exercises. Last time I tested my ring dips I was at 15 in October, last week I was up to 20. Handstand pushups went from 8 to 16 in about a year. (maybe not amazing but not bad for someone 205-210lbs)

So you don't necessarily have to do them to get better. Just get stronger overall. Strong pressing is strong pressing.
