Push Up (Crossover Knee Drive)

  • Intermediate
  • Body weight
  • Chest

Setup instructions

1) Get in the plank position - start on all fours and extend your legs back behind you. Put your arms directly under your shoulders.

Perform instructions

1) Slowly lower your chest to the ground - make sure your elbows are behind your shoulders.

2) Pause at the bottom, then 'push up' (think as if you're pushing the ground away) until you're back in the plank.

3) Drive the right knee towards your left elbow - pause on the 'crunch'. Now, return to the starting position.

4) Follow this pattern and repeat on the other side.
