Step 2: Bend at the hips, sending them backward then down. The knees bend in response, staying behind the toes. Elbows are in and the chest remains lifted. Bring the hips down past the knees to break the 90-degree line.

Step 3: Push up by driving through the heels. Complete the move by bringing the hips forward to straighten the body. If you feel pressure in the lower back, go lighter in your weight or drop it.
