Exercise of the Month: Wall Push Up

June 2019

Try this exercise as part of a regular routine for upper body strength.

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

  2. Lean your body forward and put your palms flat against the wall at shoulder height and keep 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. Try to keep your feet flat on the floor. 

  4. Hold the position for one second. 

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

  6. Repeat 10 - 15 times. 

  7. Rest; repeat 10 - 15 more times.
