Yes HSPU’s are hard, and it’s going to take a little more than a week or two to develop them for most of us. Don’t worry though there are quite a few progressions you can work on to build the foundation for your HSPU.
Pike Push-up on Box:
If you are close, this is going to be the movement that helps to develop the strength, endurance, and stability of the HSPU.
Not only does it help you become comfortable in an inverted position. Done properly it engages the shoulders, core, glutes, and quads.
Don’t get sloppy with these, hold the positions. If what Ayla is doing in the video is to difficult for you. Move to your knees on the box. If that’s too difficult do it with your feet on the ground or move to building some shoulder strength with the seated dumbbell press.
