By Jonathan Goodair, GQ

Make this month’s focus a move that will challenge upper-body strength, core stability and coordination. This pilates hybrid ticks all the boxes, taking the push-up to a whole new level.



In push-up position, place your hands under your shoulders, with feet just wider than hip-distance apart.

Place left hand just forward of shoulders and right hand just behind shoulders.

Cross right leg over left leg and wrap left foot round right foot. Do not allow hips or back to sag.

Perform one offset push-up.



Using left hand to support body weight and right hand to stabilise torso, pivot on right foot from toe to heel and swing hips down low to the left. Hover just off the floor, so that torso rotates to face backwards.

Keeping shoulders stable and wide, swing hips back to start position reversing the sequence.



With hands still offset, stabilise left shoulder and lift hips to pike, with right hand providing minimal assistance.

Return to start position, swap hands and legs and repeat.

Perform 5 alternating reps each side.
