Why should I know? All I know is I'm going up no matter what anyone says. When I can do 20+ it's not like it's going to matter anyways.

Re: 10 Handstand pushups

Maybe if I didnt have college, a job, and homework. My most recent workouts have all been at home.

Been three months but I still remember this challenge. Yesterday's WOD had ten straight HSPU's in it. I'll try it again soon to make absolutely sure of ROM and try for a new PR.

Re: 10 Handstand pushups

I believe I've managed at least 14 consecutive (head to floor, no neck craning) by now and I just did a full ROM HSPU a while ago. Again, this PR was after a nice long rest.

Hope you've been keeping up, Jason...

Re: 10 Handstand pushups

Nice work! I'm still only getting about halfway down to the floor on mine!

Re: 10 Handstand pushups

Congrats Derek. I haven't tried for a new test lately but by the time I can do one for every year or age I'll be able to bang a few on parallettes against the wall and maybe 1 or 2 free.

Re: 10 Handstand pushups

Now I'm piqued. I've done 7 nose to floor with back to wall, hands at 6 inches from the wall and 10 consecutive nose-to-floor facing the wall, maybe as close as 9 inches. About 1/2 a rep on parallettes. I'd like to get five on paralletes, 15 back to the wall, an utimately one free standing.

Let's talk about ring hspu in another life.

Re: 10 Handstand pushups

I got way better at these by putting them in my warm-up instead of dips. Pump a couple out every once in awhile during the day and you'll not only work on hand balancing but also the push-up part. With a wall I think my current record is 23...it will have to be one of my test things after the 3 month point of the hybrid program.

Re: 10 Handstand pushups

Failed on rep 11 last night. Last time I tested about a month ago I was around 5 or 7. I'll try against the wall with parallettes and see how I do. I figure 2, fail on 3.
