Narrow Grip Wall Push-Up Benefits

  • The Narrow Grip Wall Push-Up is an easy push-up variation that is preferred by those who are new to exercise or who cannot do push-ups as an alternative to doing push-ups. It is a compound exercise that requires no equipment and works multiple muscle groups at the same time. Although this bodyweight exercise mainly targets the triceps, it also works the inside of your chest and the front of your shoulders.

triceps anatomy

The triceps muscles are the three-part muscle structure that covers the back of the arm. The main purpose in back arm muscle movements is to focus on the triceps muscles. As most movements work all of the triceps muscles, there are muscle groups in which they are the main area of influence.
There are many exercises to build the triceps muscles, but instead of doing all these movements in the same workout, focus on choosing exercises that emphasize all different parts of the triceps.
