I know I am going to regret asking this, but how does one do push ups when they are standing on their hands?

You stand on your hands, and then bend your elbows till
the top of your head touches the floor, then you
straighten your elbows which completes one
push-up upside down.

My interest in balancing on one hand,
began in 7th grade after I broke my right wrist.

With a broken wrist, I could not stand on my hands
so I started standing on my left hand.

The grass is already between the toes, the telescope is advertised as the instrument of seeing.

So true..........

unless you are upside down
then the grass is between your fingers.

I was able to accomplish this when I was going to college.
8 push-ups does not seem like much but when you are standing on your hands, 8 push-ups is a lot.
100 to 150 steps doesn't seem like much but when you are walking on your hands, it is substantial.
Balancing for 10 seconds does not seem like much unless it is on 1 hand.

Brilliant!
