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. Aim for a straight line between your head, neck, back and legs.

2) Place the pilates ring on the floor and rest your chest on it.

Perform instructions

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

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

3) Repeat.
