We've partnered up our friends at Health Perch to bring you some new exercises to spice up your workout.  Whether you’re short on space, time, or budget, getting creative with your workout routines can lead you straight into a wall—literally. Find a cozy corner at home or at the gym and hit up these great wall-friendly moves for a solid, full-body workout.

Wall exercises are a perfect way to engage stabilizer muscles in the core, shoulders, and hips.  You can increase or decrease the intensity of an exercise by positioning yourself on the wall at different angles. The options for a fun exercise routine are endless. Clear some space and let’s work up a sweat!
