A. Come into a push-up position with your palms on the floor under your shoulders and the ball of your feet on the floor.
B. Lift your left leg a few inches off the floor. Bend your elbows out to the side as you lower your face and chest toward the floor. Once your face in hovering just above the floor, exhale as you push back up.
C. Rotate your torso to the left, placing your right leg and your foot on top of your left and lifting your right arm toward the ceiling. You should now be balanced on your left palm and the outer edge of your left foot. Your abs should be tight, your tailbone tucked, and your waist and your body straight, reaching toward the ceiling. Hold this position for two seconds. Lower back into a push-up position, repeating a push-up with your right leg raised and then a T-stand with your left arm raised. That completes two reps.
