Setup instructions

1) Place a sandbag to your left side - aim to align it with your lower chest/core.

2) 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) Now, shift the weight to your left side and grab the sandbag with your right hand. Drag it across the floor to your right side.

4) Follow this pattern and repeat.
