1. From a deep squat, place your hands flat on the floor in front, shoulder width apart.
2. Come onto your tiptoes and walk your feet closer to your body.
3. Slowly bring your weight forward onto your hands and off your feet until your knees touch your upper arms.
4. Deepen the bend in your elbows to inch your knees up above your elbows, bringing them as close to your armpits as possible.
5. Shift your weight onto your arms fully, squeeze elbows in, tighten your abs, and press your shins into your forearms. Your feet should float up behind achieving a balance.
