Step by Step Guide
Begin on all fours in a high plank position with the hands under the shoulders and feet hip distance apart. Engage the abs to maintain a neutral spine.
First shift your bodyweight forward so that the shoulders move forward past the hands and weight is shifted forward more into the toes.
Then bend at the elbows to lower the body down a few inches toward the ground - without dropping to the ground.
Straighten the arms to return back up to the beginning high plank position.
Repeat for the desired reps.
A common mistake is holding this stretch for too long which can be dangerous and occlude blood flow to the brain. So instead, do only 5-second holds and relax. Do not continue this exercise if you feel dizzy or disoriented.
