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, twist the torso to your right and swing your left leg through. As you do this, tap your foot with your right hand. This should cause you to 'crunch' in the centre.

4) Swing your leg back and return your hand to the floor - you should be in the plank position.

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