Assume a push up position with your arms straight and your hands placed slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Your body should form a straight line from your ankles to your head.

Lower your body until your chest nearly touches the floor. Pause, and then push back up.

As you straighten your arms, push your upper back toward the ceiling. This extra movement is very slight so you will rise up only another couple of inches. Pause for a one count, then repeat.
