Here’s the breakdown of Grasshopper Push-ups

– Get into a plank position with with hands under your shoulders and your body in a straight line.

-Begin moving by bending you elbows straight back to lower your chest towards the ground.  As your elbows bend back your biceps touch the side of your body.

– When your chest gets below your elbows, begin to straighten your arms.  Make sure to keep your back straight as you return to the beginning plank position.

– Do 2 sets of 10 repetitions
