Exercise of the Month – Practice Push-Ups

Dec 22, 2016 | Exercise, Health Information

Traditional push-ups are a great way to work muscles in the arms, shoulders, and chest; however, they can be difficult to complete correctly, especially for the older generation.

You can modify this exercise and still get health benefits by doing wall push-ups.

Face a wall while standing about arm’s length away, lean forward, and press your palms flat against the wall.

Bend your arms and slowly bring your upper body toward the wall, hold for a moment, and push yourself back until your arms are straight again.

Do a set of 10 reps, rest, and repeat another set.
