Coach's Tips

The name was given because the workout posture was similar to the shape of the arm when shooting an arrow. Please balance your arms well!

How to

Starting Position

1. Begin in a high plank position with your hands directly under your shoulders. 2. Keeping your core engaged, lift your right foot off the ground and cross it behind your left ankle. 3. Your right knee should be bent and your right foot should be hovering just above the ground.

Proper Form

1. Bend your elbows and lower your chest towards the ground. 2. Stop when your chest is just above the ground. 3. Push yourself back up to the starting position. 4. Do the same motion with your left foot crossed behind your right ankle.

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale as you lower your chest and exhale as you push back up. 2. Try to maintain a consistent breath throughout the exercise.

Precautions

1. Make sure to keep your core engaged and your body in a straight line throughout the exercise. 2. Keep your elbows close to your sides as you lower your chest. 3. Only lower your chest as far as you can without compromising your form.
