Sculpt Your Abs And Tone Your Body With This Wall Workout

Get toned up!

We all know how good the bodyweight workouts are going. We all had gyms closed and needed to improvise some kind of workouts.

Bodyweight workouts are still the best functional trainings to be done. But there is a fresh way to do body-weight routines, and it’s all about going vertical. Using a wall can intensify many moves that are typically done on the floor. Not to mention that you can find a wall anywhere.

This five-move wall workout targets your lower body and core—to the point where you’ll likely feel your muscles quiver as you complete each set. That’s where the body changing happens. Plus, you’ll boost your balance, stability, and alignment: Working against a vertical surface helps improve your alignment because it gives you a physical guide for properly placing your body in space.

Do a dynamic warm-up consisting of mountain climbers, butt kicks, and jumping jacks. Then do 20 reps each of bridges; downward dog to plank; and forward, reverse, and side lunges. Hold a wall squat for 60 seconds. Then do the indicated reps of each move in the order below. For a cardio burst, do 1 to 2 minutes of shadow boxing or jumping jacks between moves.

1. Push-Up Tap:

How to:

  • Start on floor in plank on palms facing the wall, about an arm’s length away.
  • Do a push-up.
  • At top of the push-up, tap your right hand to the wall (shown).
