- Start in a modified push-up position, with your legs straight behind you and your feet together, your arms bent at 90 degrees and your forearms together on the floor, with your fists pointing to each side.
- Shift your weight to one side and push off with your forearms to rotate your body so that you’re facing to the side. Allow your feet to stack on top of each other and place your upper hand on your hip.
- Pause, then reverse the movement back down to the starting position.
- Repeat in the other direction.
- Repeat for the desired number of repetitions on each side.
Keep your abdominal muscles engaged and back flat, your body forming a straight line from your ears to your ankles, throughout.
You should feel it working your core and shoulders.
