Place your hands on the floor slightly wider than shoulder width apart, but place your left hand about 6 inches in front of your left shoulder and your right hand about 6 inches behind your right shoulder. Using this staggered stance, slowly lower yourself until your chest is an inch off the ground. Push through your chest, shoulders, and triceps to return to the start position. Keep your body in a straight line at all times. Do 2 reps for one side then switch hand positions-that is, move your left hand behind your left shoulder and your right hand in front of your right shoulder-by walking one step forward. Do 2 reps then "walk" forward again, repeating until you’ve completed
