Today we're gonna be doing a calisthenics shoulder workout. I love this workout because it builds my endurance for stuff like handstands, handstand push-ups, and more advanced movements. So let's see if you can keep up with this routine. (energetic electronic music)Alright, so let's get started. The first exercise we're gonna do is wall walks. We're gonna go towards the wall, hands on the ground, shoulder width apart, then we're gonna start walking up the wall as high as you can.
Once you get to the top, you can press with your fingertips so that you don't fall forward. This will keep you close to the wall. You also want to get to as close to the wall as you can because this is gonna help your technique and your handstand overall a lot more. So once you're here, you can come back down. You actually don't have to hold it for that long. So you come back down, try not to touch the floor. Come back up.
We're gonna go for five, so this is two. Alright. So you can take a little break if you want. Really you want to take a break until you feel like you can keep on going. You don't want to be like waiting too long or feeling like you're completely fresh. We want to keep that fatigue-ness and be able to endure through it.
So the next exercise is handstand shoulder taps. You can do it facing a wall, but I would prefer if you did it with your nose facing the wall, like a handstand wall walk. So we're gonna go up. And from here, as close to the wall as you can with your fingertips pressing and your feet tight together, we're first going to becoming up on your fingers. Then, coming up with your hands. And finally, coming up to shoulder to shoulder. So, you're gonna choose a progression that works for you and then we're gonna try to go for 10 reps, something like that, whatever. So let's go for 10 reps. Choose the progression that works for you and get started. You guys can feel free to get down like that or you can just walk down as slow as you can, whichever one is more comfortable.
So the next exercise we're gonna do is handstand push-ups. And we all know you can do handstand push-ups like this, facing the wall. But today I want you to do it this way. Now, we're doing all of our exercises this way and the reason why is because when you do a handstand towards the wall this way, the weight of your body gets distributed and gets forced to be stacked on top of each other, so it helps your technique and it also helps to feel what it's gonna be like to actually hold a good form handstand. So we're gonna do our push-ups that way as well and you're gonna feel it, it's a lot harder than doing it the other way. So let's go. Get as close as you can, push with your fingertips so you don't fall. Alright.
So the next exercise we're gonna do is handstand kick-ups. We're gonna go up to the wall and you're gonna kick up into a handstand and you're gonna try to keep your arms straight as you can. You can try going up with one foot and meet up at the top, feet together. Try the other foot.
And eventually, you want to do it with both feet and keeping your arms straight. So we're gonna kick up and then we're gonna try to come down slow as you can. So handstand kick-ups negative. Okay, so we're almost done.
Next we're gonna go into elevated pike push-ups. So we find an elevated surface and we're gonna try to hold a pike like that, legs straight from the hip and then straight from the hip down to your hands. So we're gonna assume the position. Hop up, put the crown of your head down as you've done before with a handstand push-up and begin, let's go for 10. Alright, so lastly, we're gonna go into a handstand hold.
You can choose to hold against the wall for endurance and try to max out as long as you can or you can try to just do a freestanding hold and try to max that out as long as you can. Let's go for holding on the wall, let's do it. In fact, let's do both. Alright. So now you should be feeling it. Let's go ahead and let's hold now on some parallettes, freestanding for as long as we can. Let's go for it, this is the last move. It's a little wobbly.
Alright, so as you can see, just calisthenics. This is a killer shoulder workout. I'm drenched, but mainly because we don't put the AC on in here. So you want to do this routine four times, Complete four routines to complete this workout. Thank you guys so much for watching.
