Perk:
Core activation and strength and upper body strength with legs roped in for the pleasure.

Work:
1. Do one push-up and as you come up, shift your weight onto the left side of the body.
2. Twist to the side while bringing the right arm up towards the ceiling in a side plank.
3. Lower the arm back to the floor for another push-up and then twist to the other side.
» Repeat the series, alternating each side, for 10 or more reps.
» You can also do this if you are doing push-ups on your knees. It’s all about the core and upper body rotation and arm extension with spine in line.
