Setup instructions

1) Get in the plank position - start on all fours and extend your legs back behind you. Place your right arm close to your side - your hand should be directly under your chest. Place your left arm forward - this should result in a staggered stance.

Perform instructions

1) Lower your chest to the ground - make sure the elbows are behind your shoulders.

2) Pause at the bottom. Now, push up (think as if you're pushing the ground away) and return to the starting position.
