1. Start with your chest and abdomen flat on the floor. The legs should be straight out behind you and the palms should be at chest level with the arms bent out at a 45-degree angle.
  2. Exhale as you push up with your hands and lift your upper body, chest and thighs off the ground.
  3. Take a second break in the plank position - keep your core engaged.
  4. Inhale as you slowly lower your upper body back to the starting position.
  5. Repeat.
