As you kneel on the floor, place your hands directly below your shoulders. Your feet should be shoulder width apart during the exercise. Straighten your arms as you walk your feet back behind you and place both feet (one at a time) on a bench that is 1 ½ feet high. Your toes should be on the bench so that your body is in a straight line from your feet to your head. Be sure that your head is in line with the neck and the upper back should be straight during the entire exercise. Pull in your abs and keep your midsection tight. From the starting position, inhale as you bend your elbows and lower the body to the floor. Once your chest is almost touching the floor, exhale as you press yourself up by straightening the elbows. For more intensity, perform the exercise with a higher bench or have someone place a weight on your back.
