    Reading around the internet, a lot of people claim that the handstand push up works the upper chest best. In fact they say it’s the next level to the decline push up. Is this true?

    It depends on your form. The more your back is arched the more your chest will be utilized. Overall though of course the handstand push up will mostly be working the upper back and triceps. Back levers, skin the cats and diamond grip lallane push ups probably do more for the upper chest though I would say.

    Sort of, but mostly arms and shoulders.
