Push Off Plank

In a kneeling push-up position with wrists directly under shoulders. Keep your back flat so that a straight line can be drawn from the top of your head to your tailbone. Pull your belly button in toward your spine.
1. Bend the left arm to bring the forearm on the mat. Then follow with the right arm.
2. Straighten the left arm then right arm to return to starting push-up position. One repetition is complete.
3. Repeat, this time beginning with the right forearm. Keep alternating arms until you have completed the suggested repetitions.
