#3 T Pushup
Do a standard pushup. Then transfer all your weight to one hand as you rotate your body to reach up toward the ceiling with the opposite hand. Keep both feet on the floor. Your arms should be in a straight line so that your body forms a T shape. Alternate sides. Once this becomes easy, lift both your arm and top foot to make an X shape.
Reps: 8 to 10
Easier: Do these with your hand on a bench.
Harder: Add dumbbells.
