Setup instructions

1) Put the bench/step on the floor and place your hands on it (palms on the side and fingers on the surface). Keep them shoulder-width apart.

2) Walk your legs back until you're in an exaggerated elevated plank. This will cause your arms to be extended in front of you - aim for the bench to be a short distance from the crown of your head. Keep the core tight, tuck in the hips and fully extend your legs. The endpoint should be a straight line between your neck, back and legs.

Perform instructions

1) Slowly lower your body to the floor - try keep it as straight as possible.

2) Pause at the bottom, then 'push up' using your triceps (think as if you're pushing the bench away) until you're back to the starting position.

3) Repeat.
