Im having some friends over tonight to do the HSPU workout and I was wondering if I would be better off having them hook their legs over a lowered bar or going into handstand and either doing a hold (30sec, 20, 10) or placing a box under their head to limit the ROM.

The last time I had a friend do a HSPU workout with me we used the box method and I think that its a good idea to get used to inversion.

Personally, I feel that my HSPU #'s have gone up 5 in a row vs none in 6 months because I have been using the box method.

Any thoughts?

Thank you

The box method is good to start, but if you have a bar and can do the self assist spot with full ROM that's really better. It's basically like a squat. Full ROM with an assist will get you progressing faster than limited ROM without.
