I recently had a chance to work with a local coach. He talked about the benefits of doing handstand pushups, and I thought it was interesting. That is why I decided to write a blog post about it.
The benefits of handstand pushups are numerous.
I first heard about this from my coach. He told me that by doing handstand pushups while in an upright position, it helps strengthen your core, and improves your balance. This seems to be the case, because I have noticed that I have a much better ability to maintain my balance while doing handstand pushups. But the kicker is that it does reduce your risk of falling and injuring yourself.
I’d like to think that I’m more aware of my body’s capabilities, but I must admit that I still have a few times where I went out and did little handstand pushups while I was trying to do other exercises. And I still have a few times where I put my hand on the wall and pulled it up and down, or went in circles with my arms, for whatever reason. I’m definitely better at the latter, but I still do it occasionally.
As it turns out, Im more aware of my own body, but I must admit that I do not have a lot of body armor. I still have a few times where I just had to turn around and do it, and I still have to do it. And I still have a few times where I just got mad at the thought of putting my hand out and taking it out.
There’s a lot of really funny things about a handstand pushup. I can’t explain them, but one of the things I do know more about is that it’s a very effective technique. You can pull it up, hold it down, and then the other hand you’re holding, but the movement will be incredibly slow and awkward. What I do know is that when I pull the pushup up with the other hand, it makes a really cute movement effect.
As it turns out, the new game from the folks at EA is so good you can use it to get a good pullup. In Deathloop, you pull an arm up, and when you pull it down, you can do a handstand pushup. That way you can get a good balance and momentum while doing the “pushup” so you can do the pullup and then the handstand pushup easily.
In a perfect world, you’d like to be able to do a handstand pushup with the other arm, but in this game you can only pull the arm up. I wish this was a little more convenient though I still think it’s a lot of fun.
The game is very responsive, but the controls feel pretty clunky. I wish it was a little easier to use.
