This easy workout move will have you feeling like you spent hours at the gym. Challenge yourself with a fun twist on the basic push-up.
- Start in a plank position, with your shoulders over your wrists and legs out behind you with your feet hip-distance apart. Pull your navel in and keep your back straight.
- As you lower and exhale, bend your elbows outward to the sides. Hold at the bottom for one breath.
- Raise back up to top push-up position. As you reach the top, keep moving in a fluid motion to side plank position: release your right arm and raise it to the ceiling, keeping your body in a long diagonal line. Hold for one breath, then move back into plank position.
- Repeat the push-up, twisting the opposite direction, bringing your left arm toward the ceiling. Return to plank position to complete one rep.
- Perform 15 reps.
