This excercise is called the Cast Wall Walk which is an introductory element to build strength throughout the shoulder girdle in the planche and handstand planes of movement simultaneously.  In addition, it is a great core workout as you keep your body strong and straight just like a pushup, plank, planche, or handstand position.

Great way to improve your ability to do movements on your hands!
