Instructions:

1) Start in a push-up position where your hands are wider than shoulder width apart at your chest level, legs fully extended, back straight and chest out. Keep your feet at a slight distance from one another.


You should form a diagonal line starting from your feet to your neck.


2) Inhale and begin lowering yourself toward the floor by bending your elbows. Keep your elbows relatively close to your body, with a slight flare. 


Descend to the point where your chest is about to touch the ground.


3) Exhale, and push yourself back up. At the top, to what was your starting position, rotate your entire body to the left. Simultaneously, raise and fully extend your left arm.


During the rotated position, allow your ankles to touch the floor.


4) Inhale, lower your arm, and place to on the floor.


Repeat for the other side and alternate between sides. One repetition counts when you have covered both sides.
