No pain no gain: it’s time for handstand pushups

My foot has been hurting for the last 2 weeks and I have not been able to run.  I’m getting really depressed lately but I couldn’t run to counteract it.   I’m trying a new exercise:  handstand pushups.  Pretty funny that most of the people doing it are kung fu fanatics (which I’m not)  I just like to train my body with only my body weight.  Much easier to exercise wherever I want to.

Remember, if you try this at home

  1. Make sure you have enough room around you just in case you fall to the side
  2. Don’t push yourself too hard, make sure you don’t hurt your shoulders
  3. If you can just do one per set, that is fine, do 20 sets and spread them over time
  4. Ping me if you want some tips on getting into handstand position, if you are working out in the Yahoo! gym, go into the aerobics room and do your handstands there
  5. Wear socks so you don’t make marks on the walls
  6. Remember the number of handstand pushups per set doesn’t matter, what matters is how many total you do in a day
