- Get in the modified push-up position on your knees but with your hands together and back flat. Spread your fingers so that your index fingers and thumbs form a diamond, and extend your arms. This is your start position.
- Allow your elbows to break, lowering your chest toward the floor while keeping your back flat.
- Press back up to full arm extension, repeating for the required number of reps.
- To make the movement more difficult, stay up on your toes rather than on your knees.
