Wall Push-Up

The Wall Push-Up is one of many variations of the standard push-up procedure. This technique is an easier version of the push-up for those with poor upper body strength.

Description

Equipment Required

A wall.

Starting Position

Place your hands flush against the wall, about shoulder width apart, and take a few steps back so that your weight is supported on the hands. The body should be straight.

Movement

Bend the arms and bring the body towards the wall, either till your elbows are at right angles or you touch the wall. Repeat this action as many times as required.

Alternatives

You can make this exercise harder by moving further away from the wall, or moving the hands closer together.
