Exercise Performance
Kneel on the floor, with one palm out on the ground directly in front of you. Stretch your legs out behind you, until they are straight and supported by the toes. Keep the spine and hips aligned, and shift your bodyweight so that your supporting arm goes straight down below your chest-not out to the side or in front of you. Once you are stable, place your non-supporting hand in the small of your back. Bend at the shoulder and elbow, lowering yourself under full control until your jaw is approximately one fist width away from the floor. Pause momentarily, before pressing back up to the start position.
