You may just think that Eddie enjoys torturing us by putting wall walks in our cross training boot camp workouts, but there are actually huge benefits to performing this exercise. Besides the obvious- it looks cool- wall walks help build superior strength in your shoulders, triceps and core muscles.
This is an incredibly difficult exercise that we reserve for our more advanced cross trainers at Ultimate Fit Zone. Performing this exercise is pretty much how it sounds- you walk up the wall. You can start in a plank position (or with chest flat on the ground for a more advanced start) with the soles of your feet pressed up agains the wall. Slowly walk your feet up the wall, while you do so, walk your hands in closer to the wall as well. The end goal is to end up in a handstand position flush against the wall. To return to the starting position, slowly walk your hands forward while lowering your feet down the wall.
It’s been a long time since most of us have done handstands. Wall walks are the perfect exercise to jog your brain on how to do them.
Wall walks are just one of the many unique exercises we do in our cross training boot camp, ZONE 360. When you join our fitness boot camp in Monmouth County NJ you will be trained across many disciplines of fitness including weight lifting, running, rowing, jumping rope, plyometrics, gymnastics and more.
*Do not try these at home without supervision. Our cross trainers performed this move after instruction from our personal trainers and were under the supervision of a trainer at the time.
