The Power Push-Up Planks (aka, Burpees)
Stand up with your feet spread out just a bit wider than your shoulder’s length. Squat and put your hands down in front of your feet on the ground.
Either step or jump your feet out into planking position, tightening your abs by keeping your body lengthened, and hold the position while you count to 8.
Do only two push-ups, on your toes preferably or else on your knees. Step or jump your feet towards your hands, Get back up into your squatting position, and stand back up. Repeat this step 4 times.
