Having hands backward requires 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 prevent repetitive strain injuries, which are common among people who work with computers.

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