- Get in the straight arm plank position and keep your body aligned in a straight line.
- Bend your elbows and lower your torso until your chest almost touches the floor and then rise until your arms are almost straight.
- Now lift the right arm off the floor and tap the left arm. Return the right arm to the floor and do another push-up.
- In the next rep, tap the right arm with the left arm.
- Perform as many reps as possible while maintaining proper form.
- Maintain a full range of motion by lowering your chest until it almost touches the floor and then rise until your arms are almost straight.
- Keep your ab and butt muscles tight to prevent your hips from sinking.
- Avoid the common mistake of lowering your head. Keep your neck in its neutral position.
