Wall Pushups

Target Muscles:

Chest, Shoulders, Triceps, and Abs

How To:

*How to pictures at the bottom

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

• Lean forward and place your hands slightly wider than shoulders width apart, palms flat on wall at shoulder level, arms straight

• Keeping your body straight, bend your elbows until your upper arms are parallel with the wall

• Return to the start position by pushing yourself back out

Important: Keep you spine in a straight line...don’t let your body sag by keeping your abs tight. Also, exhale on the way out as you return to the start position and inhale on the way toward the wall.

More Advanced: Try regular (on your toes) pushups
