Reverse Handstand Walks are exercises that develop upper body strength and endurance. For those that are new to any form of handstand walks, it is generally recommended that they start with reverse or lateral walks. The reason for this is because it is generally considered easier to maintain proper technique and body tightness when walking in a lateral or reverse direction.
