Putting your feet against the wall challenges the shoulder girdle stabilizers while enhancing core activation, Merchant says.
How to do it: Place feet about 12 inches off the floor, bottoms of your feet pressed against the wall. Assume a pushup position with hands slightly wider than shoulder-width and directly below shoulders. As you lower your upper body towards the ground drive your feet against the wall without moving them. Perform 3 sets of 5 reps. (Bring feet up higher on the wall for a greater challenge.)
