Push-Up With Single Leg Raise
- Begin in plank position (top of a push-up) with your hands under your shoulders and your body in one straight line.
- Engage your abs to stabilize your spine. Then lift your left leg off the floor. Hold like this as you inhale and slowly bend your elbows, lowering your torso so it is a few inches off the floor.
- As you exhale, straighten your arms and lower your left leg. Then lift your right leg, do a push-up, and come back to plank position. This counts as one repetition. Complete as many reps as you can while maintaining proper form.
- If it's too difficult to do this variation, do this exercise with one knee resting on the floor as in One-Legged Push-Ups.
