    So was I ... I was really surprised to hear that Marvin Eder, an absolute beast, could only (only, haha) do 25 handstand pushups. If I was fresh, I know I could probably get 15 the first time .... I figured he'd be able to do more, considering the man could do 80 pullups! Handstand pushups pwn! :D

    I'm fairly certain that the handstand pushups are without using a wall for support. If you can do 15 like that, then you're a stud.

    wow. i'm humbled

    i must do better, between chairs with no wall is the only option for me now. Now a one hand handstand pushup on a chair would be just downright freaky ( it will be mine )

    Oh, uhhhh, nevermind. haha I do them up against a wall ... so I guess I'm not a stud. :redface: I'd really like to try doing them without the wall, but I don't really know how to walk on my hands, or even stand on my hands without a wall, for that matter ... I guess I should practice that.

    Does being able to walk on yer hands require a lot of strength, or is it more technique, or both??? I've tried walking on my hands a couple of times and got to like 4 or 5 steps and then ... aaaaaaaagghhhhh *thud*. I fall on my back. haha

    I think it is some of both. I know it requires quite a bit of core strength.
