Wall push-ups are great beginner exercises for those who are ready to start working on toning their arms. Start with 8 push-ups, then increase to 10, then 12 or more. Once you feel comfortable with 12 or 15, you can progress to push-ups on the mat.

Step By Step Instructions

Step 1

Standing 2 to 3 feet from the wall, place your palms on the wall so that they are situated a little wider than your shoulders and at the same height as your shoulders.

 Step 2

Lean towards the wall at a 90-degree angle or touch your nose to the wall, then push back out. Remember to keep your core engaged by drawing your stomach towards your spine and maintaining a rhythmic breathing pattern.
