Lateral Plank Push Ups

Lateral plank push ups are a fun variation because it introduces a little bit of coordination and stability into the game.

To do them you start in the push up position as normal and do 1 rep.

When you come back up, take a step to one side. You do this by moving your outside hand and inside leg first, then following the the others.

Then you push out another rep and take a lateral step back to the starting point.

That's 2 reps! just 18 more . . .
