Set up & Starting position
Place your hands flat on the ground and get into a plank position. Contract your abdominal muscles so that your back is not hollow. Your hands should be flat on the floor, shoulder-width apart or slightly wider, with fingers extended forward.
Keeping body straight, lower body to floor by bending arms.
Isometric hold (optional) - Hold the position for a few seconds, using an isometric contraction of the triceps and pectorals.
Push body up until arms are extended and repeat.
