We are spending a few days on giving vital advice on how to develop a handstand push-up. Carl Paoli is the master at teaching this movement… Today he will backtrack and start you at the basic start position and how your body should be braced to perform this technical movement. Why do I spend so much time on movement patterns and technique? Most people going to the gym daily may be appearing to perform the exercise or movement but most times they are doing it wrong…. This over time will create problems in the spine, shoulders, knees, hips, ankles and you name it.
