Tip of the Day
To add to our shoulder tip from yesterday, the shoulder blades are a key component of the handstand.  The same shoulder activation you do for all of your upper body lifting, applies to the handstand.  Those shoulder blades should move whenever you are upside down, helping with stability and strength.  Squeeze your shoulder blades together and focus on your lats and your back to help you through the handstand push ups.
