  • Start in a position kneeling on all fours (hands, knees and feet on the ground)
  • Now lift your knees off the ground and straighten your legs to assume the push-up position
  • Level 1 of this exercise would be just holding this position for 15 – 30 seconds
  • Level 2 involves taking your right knee towards your right elbow and then back to starting position. You then repeat the same movement with the left side
  • Level 3 involves adding a push-up by moving your chest toward the ground while moving your right knee to your elbow and then repeating with your left knee to elbow
