Push Ups (from wall)

Stand on the floor facing a wall. You should be approximately two to three feet away from the wall. Extend your arms straight out in front of you (angled slightly downward so that your hands are slightly lower than your chest, lean forward and place your hands on the wall. Place your hands slightly wider than shoulder width apart (although you can place your hands closer or wider if you prefer). At this point, your arms should be straight and be at a 90 degree angle to your body. Your feet should be flat on the ground. Your body should form a straight line from your shoulders to your ankles. This is the starting position. Your body should remain in a straight position throughout this exercise. Bend your arms, lowering your body toward the wall, until your face is nearly touching the wall. Breath in during this phase of the exercise. Now, press your body away from the wall, straightening your arms. Breath out during this phase of the exercise.
