Step 1: Get into pushup plank position with arms straight, feet slightly wider than shoulder-width, core tight and hands resting on a set of dumbbells directly below your shoulders.
Step 2: Lower into a full pushup and then press back up.
Step 3: From the up position, pull your left arm into a 90-degree angle, keeping the dumbbell tight to your body.
Step 4: Lower dumbbell to your starting position. Repeat, alternating your arm each time. That is one rep. Tips: Focus on pulling your navel into your spine, squeezing your glutes and stabilizing through your entire body. Keep your chest parallel to the floor throughout and try not to rock or sway to one side.
Modification: Remove the pushup and/or ditch the dumbbells.
