As a last resort you can sub heavy dumbbell presses.
I would add that HSPUs using bands attached to the pull-up bar are also a great way to scale HSPUs.
13:06 minutes (165#, strict dumbbell push ups)
These push ups didn’t bother my left hand as opposed to every other kind of handstand variation.
The majority of my time was spent on the strict push ups – I haven’t done them much since I hurt my hand. Basically, I hit complete muscle failure several times during the last two rounds which is always a humbling experience.
Black Box (192,192)
11:57 rx’d – no abmats
HSPUs were really bad… down to singles in the first round. They probably took about 11 min of the total time.
this might be a stupid question but what are the (#,#) that some of you post sometimes?
6:48 w/ 85# and push-ups off box.
This was deliberately light. I am exhausted.
subbed 185# DL. first 21 HSPU without ab mat. 15 & 9 done with 1 ab mat.
Will try 205# DL and Rx’d HSPU next time.
225# DL, HSPU w/ Green 2″ and Purple 1″ bands
225# 1 abmatt

Aargh, missed yet another deadlift WOD and I was really hoping to hit one soon.
Squats and pushups at the beach today felt good though
