How to

Starting Position

1. Make sure you keep your core engaged throughout the exercise to protect your back. 2. Make sure your elbows stay close to your body as you lower your chest towards the floor. 3. Do not let your hips drop or raise too high as you lower your chest. 4. Do not lock your elbows as you push back to the starting position.

Proper Form

1. Maintain a straight line from head to toe and keep your core engaged. 2. Lower your chest towards the floor, while keeping your elbows close to your body. 3. Squeeze your core and glutes to keep your body in a straight line. 4. Push through your hands to return to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. As you lower your chest towards the floor, inhale deeply. 2. As you push back to the starting position, exhale.

Precautions

1. Begin by sitting on your exercise ball. Place your hands on the ball for support. 2. Slowly walk your feet out and away from the ball until your body is in a straight line from head to toe. 3. Make sure your body is in a straight line and your core is engaged. 4. Place your hands on the floor, slightly wider than shoulder-width apart, and directly under your shoulders.
