Hi, I'm Amy Dixon from Exercise TV. I'm gonna show you a great exercise that will work your entire body. I'm not kidding you. Every single muscle group is gonna be working to help you get through this. It's called a plank lunge with push up, all right. So first and foremost, let's take ourselves down to the ground. Bring yourself down to your knees first and extend your hands out, as if you're gonna be doing a push-up. Bring yourself straight up, legs are off the ground. Find your center. Let your core lift you up and now, your glute should be right in line with your shoulders. From here, you're gonna take a lunge out to the side of the hand on the left. Lunge, bring it back, now right. So you alternate. Bring that foot as close to the hand as you can. Let's go. For eight. Perfect. Seven. Find your ways in motion, if you can't quite get your foot all the way out to the outside, that's okay. Just come a little bit lighter on the foot and little bit less range of motion. Good. Perfect. Now I want you to bring your left foot out to the side of the left hand and hold here. We're gonna start just with the basic push-up. Bring your hands back, slide your elbows out to the side and your chest towards the ground. Are you ready? In four, three, two. Go get it. Down and lift. Feel that inner thigh and hamstring work, as well as your chest. Four more, right here. Here's four, lift, three, remember to breath, two, press up, one. Perfect work. Take that foot back. Give yourself a little bit of a break. Shake your legs out. Now, we're gonna alternate from right to left. For eight, here's eight. Bring it back. Seven. Good. Remember that range in motion? How are you feeling now? Those hips should be a lot more awake. Four more. Three. Keep breathing. Two. Good. One. Now, I want you to bring that right foot out to the outside of the right hand. Set up for your push-ups. You're almost there. Let's bring that chest down. Here we go. Eight and up. Seven. Six. Drive the chest down. Wake up that hamstring and glute in the opposite leg. Four more. Three. Doing so good. Two more. Good. One. Lift back to the center. Find your plank. Now, I just want you to hold right here. Find your core, really get into it. Hold and lift. Here's four, three, two, you did it. Go ahead, bring your knees back and stretch. Take your time. Roll it up. I'm Amy Dixon from Exercise TV.
