How to
1.
Place your toes on a raised bench, stool or platform with legs straight and walk your body out, face down and place your hands about just wider than shoulder-width apart or even wider to start to build your strength.

2. Keep your body long and straight and hips in line with shoulders.

3. Next, lower body downward until your chest almost touches the floor as you inhale – keeping legs straight and toes on the platform. Exhale and push back up to the start position.
