How to do it:
- Stand up tall with your feet together and your core engaged.
- Bend at the hips and try to touch the floor. As soon as your fingertips hit the floor, walk your hands out until you reach a push-up position.
- Crawl your way back up to the starting position by inching your hands backwards and piking your hips up to the ceiling.
- When your feet are flat on the floor, bend at the hips again and lift yourself back up to the standing position.
