Step 1

Place a bench horizontally behind you. Place both hands on a yoga mat slightly wider than shoulder-width with your feet together on the bench behind you, resting on the balls of your feet. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. While maintaining a straight back and stabilising through your abdominals, bend your elbows and lower your torso towards the floor until your arms form two 90-degree angles.

Step 3

Exhale. Push through your chest and extend your arms to lift your body back into starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
