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.

2) Move your hands back to be close and aligned with your ribs - point the hands outwards.

Perform instructions

1) Slowly lower your chest to the ground - make sure your elbows remain close to your sides and point behind you.

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

3) Repeat.
