Handstand Push Up with Wall and Kip

Prescription: 
  • Hands shoulder width apart
  • Fingers spread and index fingers pointed straight forward
  • Body in hollow body position with the ears glued to the shoulders
  • Chest facing towards the wall and only toes resting against the wall by pointing the toes
  • Descend by sending shoulders (and head) forward and keeping lower arm vertical
  • As the body descends try to synchronize hip and knee flexion
  • Make sure your head and hands at the bottom of the push up form a triangle shape on the ground
  • From the hole explosively extend the hips and knees
  • Follow lower body extension with an aggressive push back up to handstand while maintaining hollow body position

Note: Toes slide up and down the wall, and ideally should never lose contact
