Wall Close Grip Pushups (Tricep)

Wall Close Grip Pushups ar an awesome upper body strengthening exercise for beginners. If you can't do them on your knees or toes, start with this and work your way up to doing them on your knee and eventually on your toes.

Remember, quality is the most important. I rather you do quality pushups on the wall than on your knees or toes with compromised form.

You can always start out on your knees and when your form starts to suffer move to the wall.

Target Muscles:

Chest, Shoulders, Triceps, and Abs

How To:

• Face a flat wall, about 1.5 to 2 feet away from wall

• Lean forward and place your hands directly across from your shoulders, palms flat, arms straight

• Keeping your body straight, and elbows glued to your side, bend your elbows until your chest is close to the wall

• Return to the start position by pushing yourself back out

Important: Don’t let your body sag on the way out by keeping your abs tight. Also, exhale on the way out and don’t let your elbows flare
