It increases the difficulty of these bends gradually getting high wall farther from it.
- Start with push-ups with knees supported once you master the wall pushups. Kneel on the floor with palms flat on the floor in front of you, separated by the width of the shoulders. Make the same movement down the wall which you used but employ it to lower your body toward the floor until your chin rubbing it and then raise yourself to the starting position. Realize to be comfortable enough to try to make the standard pushups.

Elevate the floor until your arms are stretched completely. Keep right palms on the floor and feet together, so that only the fingertips touch the ground. Do not let your back bend; instead, focus on keeping a straight line with your spine. Keeps your head level looking down instead of forward.
- Slowly lower your body toward the floor by bending your arms at the elbows and holding you with the muscles of your shoulders, arms and chest to keep your firm body. Keep your spine aligned to avoid bending your back or your neck as you lower your body towards the floor. Lower until your chest or your jaw off the floor but not enough to rest the weight of your body on it.
