Developing Pushups

  • Make sure your body is rigid and have a good posture.
  • The further from the wall the feet are, the more difficult this variation becomes.
  • There should be a straight line from shoulders to knees.
  • Face the wall and extend your arms. Place your palms against the wall and keep them shoulder width apart and your feet flat on the floor.
  • Beginners can stand close to the wall -- 2 feet is a good starting distance. As you feel more confident, move further away from the wall.
  • Bend your elbows and bring your face close to the wall before pushing back to the original standing position.
  • You can do 10 repetitions to begin and increase as you gain strength.
  • Don't curve your back.
