Exercise Performance
Get into a push-up position, with your body aligned and supported by the feet and one hand flat on the floor directly below your breastbone. Place your free hand on a basketball which is out to the side of the body. It should be as far away as you can reach while keeping your palm flat on the ball. Both your arms should be straight. Slowly, and under full control, lower yourself down until your chest is one fist's width away from the floor. The act of lowering yourself will cause the basketball to roll out further to your side. Pause briefly in the bottom position, then push yourself back up.
