How to: Kick up into a handstand against a wall. Tighten your core and bend your elbows until the top of your head just touches the floor. Your elbows should not exceed a 90 degree angle. Push back up to your starting position. Repeat for several repetitions.
Tips from Lamont: Make sure that you can perform solid sets of strict pushups before heading overhead. After that you can start the handstand pushups progressions. Don't forget to keep your back straight and don't slam your head down onto the ground. The entire movement should be controlled.
Muscles worked: Shoulders and Triceps.
