    I have recently read in a forum that handstand and handstand push ups can sky rocket your blood pressure. being upside down can damage your cornea. Damn it’s my favourite exercise. I can’t live without it. Is that shocking information true?

    There’re risks with any exercise. But, the truth is your body adapts, and many people never have problems like that with handstands. That information is just precautionary to people who have blood pressure issues, are prone to light headedness, or have similar issues. Since you’ve been doing them awhile you would definitely have felt such an issue.

    Well if it’s causing you undue distress then you should probably stop doing it until you can figure why. If you’re not experiencing such symptoms and you’re simply concerned about the risks, keep in mind what I said in my previous post yet if you’re still uncomfortable doing handstand push ups I would suggest subbing it with one arm push ups for strength and one arm elbow levers for balance.
