Easy, Effective Wall Push Up Exercise for Bone Health

Wall Push Up – Step 1

For a wall push up, stand arms length away from a wall with your arms straight and your hands pressed firmly on the wall.  Take a small step back and lean forward so that your weight is leaning on your hands.

Step 2

Allow your elbows to bend so that your face comes closer to the wall and your weight is stable between your hands and feet, with  your body remaining straight in plank-like pose.  Hold for a count of three.

Step 3

Slowly push with your arms so that your body goes back to upright to the starting position to complete one repetition.  Repeat 9 more times to complete one set of 10 repetitions.

Tip:  If this style of push up does not offer enough of a challenge, try a Knee Push Up or standard Push Up.

You’ve completed this one!  Great job!
