    Smile Anyone know an alternative to handstands?

    I've just reached the Handstands on the progression to handstand push ups and one of the reasons I can't hold on for more than 15 seconds is that my wrists hurt. I normally do regular push ups with push up bars but haven't been able to figure out a way to do handstands without my wrists hurting...any suggestions?

    Use the pushup bars to do your handstands until your wrists strengthen sufficiently.
    Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

    For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either.

    As Velocity says push up bars or parallettes will work well. Wrist flexibility will develop over time so stick at it.
