Begin this exercise in the same position as the suspended push-up. With a slight bend in your elbows, raise your hands over your head. Again, only go as low as you feel comfortable. Your goal should be to have your hands, shoulders, hips and knees in a straight line.

The motion is very similar to an ab wheel but even more difficult! Think of it as a jacked-up abdominal wheel. This exercise is great for your abs, shoulders and lats. When you lower yourself, be sure to stay tight and to lower slowly.

Training Mistakes

• Rounding your back at the bottom. Keep your back straight and abs tight at the bottom.

• Forcing it. Just go as far as you can. You'll get stronger in time; there's no need to force what's not there.
