Push Up (Knee Touch)

  • 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) Shift the weight to your left side and drive the right knee and left hand towards your core - pause and crunch in the middle. Now, return to the starting position.

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