  2. Keep your bodyweight centered roughly over your hands with your shoulders braced.
  3. Start the movement by leaning to one side while bending the elbows and lowering your upper half to the ground.
  4. Pushing yourself back to the middle, return to the initial starting point by extending your elbows.
  5. Repeat the same movement, but with the opposite side.
