This might have already occurred to you guys but I figured I might as well share what I discovered today. I was walking past a yoga studio and I saw a bunch of people doing something against a wall that looked like handstands except they were bent at the hips with their legs perpendicular to the wall and their feet flat against the wall for extra support.
I’ve been trying to do handstand pushups for weeks but I always psych myself out and think I’m gonna drop myself on my head. So I went home and tried what the yoga people were doing. With the extra support from the wall I was able to do an easier version of the handstand without any fear of head-dropping. After getting used to that, full-out handstand pushups aren’t very scary anymore. I dunno, maybe this is useful to someone. Tell me if I’m just stating the obvious. Peace.
