Wall push-up

This exercise stretches the muscles and joint capsule of your shoulder joint. Stand facing the wall, about 1 to 1 1/2 feet away. Place your palms on the wall at about shoulder height. Your fingers should be pointing up and slightly outward. Slowly lean until your face is at the wall, bending your arms at the elbows. Push slowly back until your elbows are straight again. Repeat these steps about 10 times.
