Windmill push-ups

1. Start in a high plank position (on your knees if you're not quite strong enough to perform a full push-up), tighten your core, breathe in and lower yourself into a push-up.

2. Breathe out as you push back up, rotating the body into a side plank when the push-up is completed. Finish by holding the upper arm straight in the air so that the body resembles a T shape. This works the shoulders and oblique muscles while also helping to improve balance. Place the arm back on the floor and repeat for the other side for 30 seconds.
