Who Does a Wall Workout?
If you have a wall you have a way to get a workout in! There are many different variations of exercises that can be done using a wall. You do not always need an extensive amount of room or a gym. Wall work can help you tone your body.
Here are some exercises you can do using a wall wherever you are at the time!
Place your back against the wall and sit down with knees over your ankles. Be sure you have a 90% angle in your knees and press your back into the wall. You can even add extended arms over your head. This works your core, arms, shoulders, legs, and butt. Raise the intensity by extending one of the legs to hip level and lower the opposite arm to shoulder level. Then switch sides and complete a series of 12 reps.
Stand 2 feet from the wall and lean forward and place your hands on the walls. Proceed to do push-ups by pressing against the wall and pushing back to your original position. This works the chest, arms, shoulders, and core. Challenge yourself to pull one arm off the wall and place it behind your back and proceed to bend your elbow and do single-handed pushups. Switch off on your sides with a series of 12.
Want to change this up?
Go into standard pushup position and place the bottoms of your feet against the wall and do your pushups. Do not move your feet for this exercise. This one is intense!
Another shoulders, chest, and core workout. Get into plank position within an arm’s length from the wall. Be sure your shoulders are wider than your shoulders. Raise your right arm and shoulder and place your hand on the wall. Hold this plank for 20 seconds and then switch sides. You can do 3 sets switching off so you do a total of 1 minute on each side.
Stand your back against the wall and take a big step forward with your right foot. Shift your weight and press the bottom of the opposite foot against the wall while bending your elbows. Bend your right knee ad switch hands as if in a running motion and then return to the original position. This works your butt and legs by doing 15 reps on each side.
The wall workouts options are a great alternative. Just you, your goals, and a wall!
