Having hands backwards require strong wrists, but makes balance more stable. I’ve had hands outwards before as a middle ground as my wrists were not very strong back then. Strong wrists are also important in crows and handstands and prevents repetitive strain injuries which are not uncommon among people who work a lot with computers.

The wrist strengthening practice I learned when practicing crows and handstands have paid off. Previously, I didn’t dare angling the hands further backwards than 90 degrees outwards. Stability is better than when having hands forward or outwards.
