Strengthen Your Core with Push-Ups from the Forearms

Purpose: To strengthen your core without stressing your wrists as normal push-ups do.

Step 1: Lie on your stomach. Place your elbows directly under your shoulders and clasp your hands (fig. 2.10).

Step 2: Lift your body in alignment and hold for a count of five. Lower yourself and repeat.
Increase the duration of the pose and the repetitions as you feel comfortable.
