- Start in a plank position resting on your forearms with elbows directly under your shoulders, fingers facing forwards. Have legs out extended and rest up on your toes. Your body should be in a straight line.
- Use one hand at a time to come up onto your hands so that your arms are fully extended under your shoulders.
- Once you’re up on both arms, perform a press up. Drive the elbows backwards so that the chest is lowered to the floor.
- Once your arms have reached a 90 degree angle, squeeze the chest so the body is raised up until arms are fully extended again.
- Once you’re up on both hands with arms fully extended, use one hand at the time to return to resting on the forearms to the plank position.
- Once you’re back in the plank position, try again, coming up with the others hand first.
