Love this exercise. It was the first one someone showed me since I've gotten older and wider. Now it will help me become slimmer and stronger. Thanks for the challenge. I do this one everyday.

exercise=108


Starting Position

Start facing wall, arms-length away, feet slightly apart, legs straight with weight on toes. Place hands on wall with pointer fingers and thumbs forming a triangle. Keep arms in line with shoulders/chest (not above or below this region).

Action

INHALE: Bend elbows about 90 degrees and lower body toward the wall without touching it.

EXHALE: Straighten arms and return to starting position to complete one rep.

Special Instructions

The further your feet are away from the wall, the more difficult this exercise will be. Also be sure not to lock knees or elbows.

Muscles Worked: Chest, Triceps, Shoulders

emoticon Don't forget to stop back and let us know how you did with today's challenge :)

Have a FANTASTIC Tuesday and start of a new month! emoticon
