Modifications for seniors doing push-ups

Push-ups are very beneficial for seniors because they strengthen the shoulder joint and improve upper body strength. While pushing strength is not as crucial for day-to-day actions as lower body and core strength, it remains useful for many tasks and helps protect against injuries.

Here are some modified push-up variations suitable for seniors:

  1. Wall Push-Ups:

  2. Push-Ups Off a Bench (or Chair):

  3. Push-Ups on the Floor (on Knees):

Remember to maintain proper form and consult with a professional if needed.
