If you don't have a bench, you can perform this move on the floor or with one hand alternating on a medicine ball. Lower to your knees if staying on your toes is too difficult.
- Place one hand on the end of a low bench and the other hand on the floor. Your hands should be slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Lengthen your torso, draw your abs in, expand your chest, and drop your shoulders down away from your ears. Keep your neck long and your chin tucked in, and look at the floor directly ahead.
- Bend your arms, and inhale as you lower your upper body to about four inches off the floor.
- Exhale as you straighten your arms to return to the start position, and then hold your body strong as you swap hands to the other side and alternate the push-up. This counts as one rep.
- Do 20 reps.
