Setup instructions

1) Get in the plank position - start on all fours and extend your legs back behind you. Place your hands directly under your shoulders, extend the arms with a slight bend. Keep the core tight, back flat, head neutral and tuck the hips in.

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) Repeat.
