|Utility:||Basic or Auxiliary|
Lie prone on floor with hands slightly wider than shoulder width. Bend knees and raise body up off floor by extending arms with body straight.
Keeping body straight and knees bent, lower body to floor by bending arms. Push body up until arms are extended. Repeat.
Both upper and lower body must be kept straight throughout movement. Forefeet can remain on floor as long as body is pivoting on knees.
Resistance can be reduced by placing hands on horizontal bar or edge of elevated surface (knee to chest high).
For greater challenge, perform standard Push-ups.
