A LOT! Nike should start sponsoring me at this point. LOL!!

They don't have to touch. I had to adjust my hand position in the very beginning of the video. Just make sure they point toward the wall rather than to the side. I've seen handstand push-ups performed that way and it's improper form.

Against a wall or freestanding? Against a wall I would hope that I'm good for over a minute. Freestand about 3 seconds, 4 if I'm lucky...

I can prolly do a bunch against the wall. I can do handstand push ups freestanding. Legs are bent though. But I can kiss the floor and come back up. Most I've done like that is 7. I can also stay up for a period of time, I can stay longer with legs bent but I can do it with legs straight as well. I can also walk pretty damn far

Be our guest. I'll post a static handstand vid after you post yours. If I lose this challenge to anybody on the forum, I'm going to swallow a cup of mayonnaise (..especially considering the sheer amount of hours I spend on my hands on a weekly basis). LOL!

That's what all of these threads are about. Feel free to post videos of your max dips, max pull-ups, max handstand push-ups, static handstands, etc.
