Setup instructions

1) Find a wall and stand about a foot or 2 in front of it.

2) Start on all fours. Now, shift the weight to your arms, place one foot securely on the wall followed by the other. You should end up in a plank position. Walk your hands towards the wall so you're in a decline - push into the wall to hold yourself in place.

Note: it's important to keep the body straight at all times. Keep the core tight and back flat throughout the movement.

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.
