CHATURANGA PUSH PRESSRepetitions: 10
This push-press combo engages (and stretches) your entire body.
How to do it: Assume a pushup position, but move your feet forward and raise your hips so that your torso is nearly perpendicular to the floor. Your hands should be slightly wider than your shoulders, arms straight (like you’re in downward dog).
Brace your abs in toward your spine as you shift your weight forward and lower your hips, moving into full plank position. From here, bend your elbows (keeping them close to your body) and lower your body into a chaturanga pushup. When your chest is a few inches away from the floor, lift your head and shoulders up to the ceiling, and transition into upward dog. Push your hips back, lowering your chest back to the floor, and press your body back into the starting position (downward dog). That’s one rep.
Bonus tip: Try to make the movement fluid and smooth, holding each position for one count before moving into the next.
