    Handstand push-ups offer more resistence do to the fact your entire body weight is applied to the push-up. A standard push-up only applies a percentage of your weight because much of the weight is dispersed through your feet.

    My experience in ody building has taught me that floor push-ups build more stamina and tone the muscles more and that the Handstand push-ups build more muscle mass. Both have there benefits. I would recommend you vary which excersize you do every week or ten days.

    Another thing about handstand push-ups is it also uses the lats and shoulders.

    ok.. nicely Im no longer in a cheer squad... yet i will hollow my handstand for 40+ seconds. purely save training. make beneficial your palms are thoroughly parallel. First you're able to attempt and do a headstand and carry it there for as long as you are able to. once you get quite good at that attempt and do it generally.. it would strengthen my some seconds... additionally.. while doing all your handstand you are able to bend your knees on the start then while your balanced sufficient straigten them... wish it helps!! while im older Im gonna attempt and get on the team :)
