15 Min of Handstand Practice

Take 15 Minutes to work whatever progression you are currently at.  If you haven’t gotten upside down yet, work on wall walks.  If you have wall walks but haven’t gotten a Handstand Push Ups, either work the form for a pike push up, or do either a handstand hold or a pop into a handstand and work a slow (5-10 second) negative for a HSPU. If you have kipping HSPUs, work on strict HSPUs.  If you have strict HSPUs, work on HS walk progression.  If you have HS walks, work on max unbroken distance.
