- Start by placing your forearms (wrist to elbow) and hands firmly on the floor, ensuring that your elbows are directly below your shoulders. Extend both legs behind you and elevate your hips off the floor, resting on your knees. Gently draw your ribs towards your hips to engage your core. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Push through your hands to extend your elbows and lift your forearms from the floor. Brace your abdominals and ensure that your spine remains in a neutral position throughout the movement. You should feel tension in your triceps, shoulders and core throughout this movement.
- Exhale. Bend your elbows to lower your forearms towards the floor to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions or time.
