Do not allow your head, upper back, or butt to lose contact with the wall. Keeping your elbows, wrists, and hands pressed into the wall, slide your elbows down toward your sides as far as you can. Squeeze your shoulder blades together. Return to the starting position. That's 1 repetition. Do 10 reps.
