The most common faults in a kipping handstand push-up are:
- Arching through the midline.
- The feet sliding against the wall during the press.
- Setting up too close or too far away from the wall.
In today’s video, I review the lesser-known tips and cues to help resolve these faults in the handstand push-up.
In short, here’s a summary:
- Stay hollow by thinking of the handstand push-up the same way you would perform a push press.
- Practice driving your heels straight up to the ceiling, working on your feet touching the wall only after you have extended your elbows.
- When you’re at the bottom of your kip in the tuck hollow position, make sure your low back can touch the wall.
