The integration of strength and balance gives the handstand push-up an athletic edge that brings this movement to at least peer status with even the heaviest of presses, whether bench, overhead, or jerk. Performing 20 handstand push-ups in the middle of the room or on parallel bars becomes an extraordinary feat of strength and balance that has no peer in weightlifting movements.

A 2013 review by Miriam Vos and Joel Lavine presents evidence linking fructose to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), the most common chronic liver disease in adults and children: “Certain dietary sugars, particularly fructose, are suspected to contribute to the development of NAFLD and its progression. The increasing quantity of fructose in the diet comes from sugar additives (most commonly sucrose and high fructose corn syrup) in beverages and processed foods. Substantial links have been demonstrated between increased fructose consumption and obesity, dyslipidemia, and insulin resistance. Growing evidence suggests that fructose contributes to the development and severity of NAFLD.”
