There was some debate today in a few classes about proper starting position as well as range of motion in today’s 3 body weight movements. Please watch the videos below and read their captions to clear up any misunderstanding.

Handstand Pushups

Incomplete Handstand Pushup repetition

Standards for movement are one full pass through the movement from lockout to depth to lockout.
From headstand, press into full lockout start position.

Lockout in a handstand push-up is elbows are fully extended and both heels are touching the wall. Depth is head is touching the ground.

Full range of motion of a movement can be compared to a squat. Full joint extension to start, passing through full range of motion in flexion at the involved joints, completing the movement back to full extension of all involved joints.

1 complete Handstand Pushup repetition, from headstand start

1 complete Handstand Pushup repetition, from lockout start position

Ring Dips

1 complete Ring Dip repetition, from a bottom entrance

Standards for movement are one full pass through the movement from lockout to depth to lockout.
If you enter the rings in the bottom position, press up to the start position.

Lockout in a ring dip is elbows fully locked out with triceps squeezed, depth is shoulder below the elbow.

This start and end point is the same as a squat. All joints in full extension to start the rep, pass through full range of motion of the joints in flexion at the bottom, to full extension of the joints to complete the rep.

2 Ring Dip repetitions, entering the rings at full lockout

Pushups

2 complete Pushups, starting from bottom position

Standards for movement are one full pass through the movement from lockout to depth to lockout, while maintaining chin up and head in neutral position, body in full rigid plank throughout.
If you begin laying on the ground, press to full lockout plank position to start the rep.

Lockout in a pushup is elbows fully locked out with triceps squeezed, in rigid plank position. Depth is chest and hips touching ground with knees in full extension.

This start and end point is the same as a squat and bench press. All joints in full extension to start the rep, pass through full range of motion of the joints in flexion at the bottom, to full extension of the joints to complete the rep.

2 complete Pushup repetitions
