Doug Hepburn's Handbalancing

Doug Hepburn's Handbalancing

Many of the Olympic-style weightlifting champions of years past were also very good handbalancers. They felt--with very good reason--that handbalancing would build shoulder strength and stability to help their overhead pressing power and in holding heavy weights in the overhead position. 

Showing that a heavy bodyweight isn't an obstacle, the great Doug Hepburn could easy perform handstand pushups at the drop of a hat at 305 pounds.   Handbalancing is still very much a discipline that will benefit every strength athlete.
