Wall Push ups!

If you struggle with pushups….try a wall push up. Put both hands on the wall. Walk away from wall. Both feet hip width apart and heels off the floor. On an inhale bend the elbows keeping shoulders back. On an exhale extend the arms long for a push up. The closer you are to the wall the easier the exercise becomes. The further away from the wall, the harder it is. Make sure you keep abdominals engaged and back stable. To work on stability. Try this with a Swiss ball. Put ball on the wall about chest height. Put hands on ball shoulder width apart and go into a push up. If you need a challenge, bring the ball lower to the floor. Enjoy!
