Wall Push-Up

The Wall Push-Up is one of the 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. The incline push-up is a similar exercise.

Exercise 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.


Bend the arms and bring the body towards the wall, either till your elbows are at right angles or you touch the wall.

The Workout

Repeat this action as many times as required. See Push-Up Workouts for example training programs.


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