Welcome to the Handstand Push Up Tutorial (HSPU Tutorial). If you want to learn how to hold a handstand and how to do a handstand push up, while building an athletic physique, then this is it. ;)
Here is a rundown of what I eat. :) This is not rocket science but my way of eating will give you a clear idea on how to put together a strategy. I will go through exactly what and how much I eat and why. Make a daily/weekly eating plan for yourself, to keep yourself accountable. ;)
This is the first (and easiest) routine of the Handstand Push Up Tutorial. The beginner routines are meant to condition you from the bottom up, with a strong foundation, so you can progress along this level and eventually transition into the BOSS & BEAST levels. :)
As we go along, you will notice that the routines become progressively more challenging. This is still a beginner routine and in the "lighter end" of the BEGINNER level. It will prepare you for what is to come! ;)
I will repeat this over and over again for you. PROPER FORM! You need to stick to the exercises & reps with integrity. Don't cheat on the form. Do full range of motion and be disciplined. :)
If you've never done Russian push ups before, you will be familiar with them here. :D I am adding an extra set for you and you will still be doing very basic (easy) calisthenics movement patterns, preparing you for the inverted positions in the BOSS level ;)
To unlock and use the 4th routine, you have to pass this milestone. Complete it within (60 Seconds) with proper form to pass. If you can't pass it yet, spend more time on the previous routines and get back here in a week or two.
Well done, you've passed the first milestone and unlocked the 4th routine in the Handstand Push Up series.
Good job. You are well on your way to the next milestone. It's cool to feel the improvement right?! ;)
So you are one of the serious ones, aren't you?! This is your final test of the BEGINNER level. If you manage to complete the challenge within 120 seconds, you earn the right to continue onto the Boss level! If not, continue with the previous routines until you've got it! :)
You are not at all expected to hold a handstand by now. We still have a long way to go together. ;) But here are some pointers that I want you to take to heart and pay attention to if you are serious about achieving the Handstand Push Up!
Moving up the ranks! Congratulations Grasshopper, you now start your quest on becoming a true Boss! Routines are considerably more difficult compared to the beginner level from hereon out. You will encounter your first angled wall handstand here. :)
Once you can complete all exercises & reps within the time-limit of a routine (This one is 85 min. max.) you know that you have mastered it :) that means it's a good measurement method, for when to try out the milestones. ;)
Do you wanna be a Boss or WHAT? Complete the exercises & reps (with proper form). You can ONLY earn this 3rd milestone if you can complete it within 180 seconds. ;) Keep your lower back pressed into the floor on the supine leg lifts.
It's getting harder for a reason! Consistency is KEY :) In order to achieve the hand stand push up, let alone the handstand, you gotta give it your all. The first exercise is going to be tough! Be sure to go deep on your HSP's ;)
A Master must prepare oneself for hardship and?adversity, cause eventually you will be faced with these elements. :) And when you do, these are the times you become stronger if you choose to push through! :)
Are you ready to take on the Boss level? Do your best and pay close attention to your handstand shrugs. Be sure to shrug all out. Calisthenics is fun ;) Give your best! Soon, you will be able to move up the ranks. :)
You know the drill now, in order to complete the challenge you gotta complete the exercises & reps with proper form. In order to earn the 4th milestone complete it within 200 seconds. Continue with the boss routines until you are able to pass this milestone. :)
THE BEAST LEVEL! Only the Disciplined make it this far! The routines are considerably more difficult from hereon out. Keep focused on your wall walks. Don't slouch, be rigid and activate your core & lower back. :)
Full range of motion on all exercises. I want you to pay attention to your hand stand push ups and pike push ups. All the down, no cheating. Proper form is the law in calisthenics!. Get going and make me proud :)
