1. With your hands and feet on the floor get yourself into a push-up position.
2. Keep your hands slightly wider than shoulder-width apart and tighten the muscles of your stomach and butt.
3. Without arching your back lower your body to just above the floor.
4. Slowly return to the starting position, rotating your body as you do this so one hand reaches for the ceiling while the other supports your weight. When doing this, try to keep your arms as straight and extended as possible.
5. Return to your starting position, complete another push-up followed by a rotation with the opposite arm.
