Process

Step 1: In all-4-up position on the hands and feet. Form a straight line from head to feet. The Link™ runs down the front side of the body. Hands are at shoulder width.

Step 2: Steadily drop the body while remaining rigid until hovering above the ground.

Step 3: As you approach full arm extension on the way back up, push up onto one arm and twist to the side. Extend the up-arm in line with the down arm. Hold for 1 count.

Step 4: Return to starting position in controlled manner.

Tips: Don't let the elbows flare out as it will put unwanted stress on the deltoids and can cause joint pain. Keep the glutes squeezed to ensure a rigid body. Use the upward momentum to push with added force off of the down arm and twist as one side rises into erect position. 

Link™ to Exterior: Handles held in hands. Hands resting at chest

Stance: Push-up position
