Starting Position
Start facing wall, arms length away, feet slightly apart, legs straight (but knees not locked). Place hands onto wall, slightly wider than shoulder-width apart.

INHALE: Keeping head in neutral position, bend elbows to lower head/chest toward wall, coming as close as you can to it but not touching it.

EXHALE: Straighten arms and return to starting position for 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.

Muscles Worked: Chest, Triceps, Shoulders

    I’m officially declaring a goal, here and now, to be able to do 100 push-ups (the real kind, on the floor). These are a great way to get started with push-ups. I’ve graduated to knee push-ups, but I’m not at all close to my goal of 100 traditional push-ups.
