Wall Push Up

Physiotherapy in Richmond for Shoulder

Stand with your feet hip width apart, approximately 2ft from the wall.  Keep your arms at shoulder height and hands flat against the wall. 

Using your arms, lower your body towards the wall with control, then push up from the wall by straightening the elbows.  Keep the head and spine in a straight line and the lower abdominal muscles firm throughout the exercise. The further your feet are from the wall, the more intense the exercise becomes.   Be sure to keep your shoulders in neutral position, not allowing them to hike up towards the ears.

Breathe throughout the exercise. Hold and repeat as advised by a physiotherapist at Cambie Physiotherapy and Health Clinic.
