I find that in high-rep HSPU workouts, my hands sneak wider and wider apart. This excessive hand width shortens my ROM by 2 inches so I'm not even sure if I should count the reps. Would it be better to just put blocks under my head?

Typically, your hands are supposed to be about shoulder width in the HSPU.

Just wider than shoulder width. Generally about 1 cubit (Distance from elbow to tip of middle finger)
