Secrets of Success

Wall Push-Ups



Wall push-ups are a good way to get more upper-body exercise when you may not have time for floor push-ups, or maybe you're not so great at floor push-ups. They benefit chest, shoulders, arms/triceps, and core muscles. Step back just a little (safely) to "lean into the wall" more, and make the push-ups a bit more challenging. If you need to protect a wall from natural oil from your hands, try wearing non-slip or rubber gloves.

  • I do these too, also "counter top push ups" like at kitchen or bathroom counter (one's a little higher than the other)... SparkPeople Coach said it can be counted as a type of incline push-up. Yay! - by PROVERBS31JULIA
