Close-Arm Wall Pushups

  |  in Blog, Exercises, General, Sample WorkoutsNo Comments

This is a great exercise to target your chest, shoulders and triceps. Wall pushups are also a good alternative for those who are unable to do regular pushups on the floor. This will help you build your arm strength!
 
Starting Position
Start facing wall, arms-length away, feet slightly apart, legs straight with weight on toes. Place hands on wall with pointer fingers and thumbs forming a triangle. Keep arms in line with shoulders/chest (not above or below this region).

Action
INHALE: Bend elbows about 90 degrees and lower body toward the wall without touching it.

EXHALE: Straighten arms and return to starting position to complete one rep.

Special Instructions
The further your feet are away from the wall, the more difficult this exercise will be. Also be sure not to lock knees or elbows.

Try doing 3 sets of 10 taking a break between each set.
