Handstand Push-Ups are one of the more challenging exercises you will encounter. The benefit is that they provide an all-around upper body workout, second to none for developing strong shoulders. Consider this the upper body-equivalent of a squat.

1. To begin, move a few inches away from a wall, and kick up into a handstand, using the wall to steady yourself. Your legs should be straight up.
2. With your head facing forward, begin to lower yourself slowly to the ground, until your head is touching the floor. They key is to stay in control and move steadily through the motion.
3. When you reach the floor, push yourself back up to your starting position.
4. Perform five to ten repetitions, and if that is not possible in the beginning, practicing holding yourself in a static position.
