Wall Push-Ups

July 2017

These push-ups will strengthen your arms, shoulders and chest. Try this during a TV commercial break. 

  1. Face a wall, standing a little farther than an arm’s length away, with feet shoulder-width apart. 

  2. Lean your body forward and put your palms flat against the wall at shoulder height and 
    shoulder-width apart.

  3. Slowly breathe in as you bend your elbows and lower your upper body toward the wall in a slow, controlled motion. Keep your feet flat on the floor.

  4. Hold the position for 1 second.

  5. Breathe out and slowly push yourself back until your arms are straight.

  6. Repeat 10-15 times. Rest; repeat 10-15 more times.
