Process

Step 1: In all-4-up position on forearms and feet. Form a straight line from head to feet. Hands are at shoulder width.

Step 2: Steadily drop the body while remaining rigid. As you drop, simultaneously bring one knee to the same-side lat. Hold for 1 count at the bottom. 

Step 3: As you approach full arm extension on the way back up, return the leg to initial pushup position. 

Step 4: Repeat with opposite side.

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. 

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

Stance: Push-up position
