Just got my handstand push-ups!

I have been crossfitting about a year. One of my goals early on, was handstand pushups. At the time I thought this was a pie-in-the-sky goal. I could barily lift 45lbs over my head.

A few months ago, I was able to get one. Barily.

Today I tried again.... I strung together three!! And then three more!!
In all I did 5 sets of 3.

I am so excited, I can't belive it!

Nice one Megan, well done.

I'm curious if your shoulder press is equal to your bodyweight, or how far it's progressed in the same time as the HSPU.

Well done! I can still only get one or two, and I am over the moon about them! Good job.
