For a workout with only 90 reps of two exercises, "Diane" can be a lot to bite off and chew. Most people struggle with the heavy deadlifts, not to mention handstand push-ups... This is where the concepts of 'scaling' and 'progressions' come into play. It's easy to decrease the weight on your bar and increase the intensity, but we have to get a bit more creative when modifying the handstand. Your instructor may have given you a pair of dumbbells to press or told you to do pike push-ups as an alternative. Put a priority on developing vertical pushing strength and you'll soon be progressing to something more difficult and impressive. Congratulations to Bryce for getting his first kipping handstand push-ups, and to Paul for doing all 45 of them as prescribed!
