Perform one offset push-up.



2

Twist

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.



3

Pike

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.
