2.      Jump the legs back until they’re stretched out beneath you (you should be in a plank-like position).

3.      Jump the feet outwards so they’re a comfortable distance apart.

4.      Pause and then jump back inwards again so you’re back in the plank position.

5.      Move directly down into a push-up

6.      Push back up through the push-up until you’re once again in the plank

Bodybuilders are a favorite drill of Grandmaster Chai Sirisute.  Fighters will do hundreds of reps per day in his intensive Muay Thai training camps.  Over the course of a five day camp you can build up to doing 75-100 in a set….. while facing downhill… in the mud.

Enjoy!
