Move Targets: Chest, Arms and Core


Step-by-Step

Step 1: Begin on all fours and walk your hands out until your hips drop into a straight line with your spine and hamstrings. Curl your toes under and set the knees about hip-width apart. Your hands will be outside of the shoulders, fingers spread and pointing forward. Look at your mat.

Step 2: Inahle and drop your chest down as low as you can. Bend the elbows diagonally backward, pulling the shoulder blades together. Keep the core locked so the body moves as one.

Step 3: Exhale and push yourself away from the ground as far as possible so you completely come out of the push up. Inhale and repeat immediately.
