Upper Body
Low Impact


Equipment Needed:

Workout Type:
Strength, low impact

Body Focus:


• Get into a high plank with your feet hip-width apart and hands wider than shoulder-width apart.
• Push your hips up as high as possible into an inverted V. Keep your back flat, leg straight, with knees unlocked. You should be on your toes.
• As you lower your hips, keep your legs straight but allow your arms to bend as you push forward so that your chest nearly grazes the floor like a dive bomber.
• Press back through your hands to full arm extension and repeat for the required number of reps.
• Lower your shoulders and bring your chest to nearly brush the ground. Swoop through your arms as your chest arches up between your arms and look up toward the ceiling. Pause for a count or two.
• Reverse the movement. Lower your chest back down toward the ground and then your hips up toward the ceiling back into an inverted V.

Useful Tips:
• Remember to breathe!
• Don’t rush the moves, ensure proper form throughout.

You should feel your:
• Chest, shoulders, triceps, back and core.
