Movement: Keeping your core tight walk your right hand up to an actual push up position and then your left hand then come back down to your right elbow and then your left elbow. Alternate sides, walking up onto your left hand next, then your right and then back down to your left elbow, returning to the start position. While walking up and down from a plank to a push up position continue keeping your hips neutral and your core tight.
