Wall Pushups
On Knees

Transcript: Pushup Progression

I’m going to tape a progression of pushups, from easiest to more difficult.

So first of all we have wall pushups. You stand about 2 feet away from the wall and you put your hands just a little wider than shoulder width. Bring your body into the wall and push back. Nice slow and controlled movements.  To make these more difficult you can get a little further away from the wall, maybe 3 or 4 feet, put your arms out a little wider, then bring the body in and out.

Now the next most difficult pushups would be on the floor, on your knees, with your feet on the floor. So, keep your feet on the floor, hands a little wider than shoulder width, bring your body down, and up.

Next most difficult would be on the floor with your feet up toward your butt. You bend your knees, feet towards your butt, then up and down.

Then you progress to ordinary style pushups.

And then the next most difficult would be pike pushups. This is where you try to have your body nice and piked up, these will hit your shoulders really good. Come down and up.

So that’s a progression of pushups.
