Are you looking for an easier way to do push ups? Then, wall pushups are your answer.

If you’re new to exercising or regular push ups are much too hard for you…

Then, this exercise variation helps get you off on the right foot.

Today, I’ll show how to do pushups for beginners.

How to Do Wall Pushups

  1. Stand a few steps away from a wall, lean forward, extend your arms and place your palms flat at shoulder level into the wall.
  2. Bend your elbows and come close to the wall.
  3. Press through your palms and extend your arms.
  4. Be sure to keep your body straight from ankles to shoulders and rigid throughout the movement.

General Rule: The closer you have your feet together, the harder the exercise is to complete.  The further you separate your feet, the easier it is to complete a movement.
