How to progress the exercise

Progressing this exercise is all about increasing the speed of the movement- the slower the movement, the easier; the faster the movement, the more challenging. Also, you can switch the movement to your elbows, for a slightly easier version, or keep it at hand level for a bigger challenge. Keeping your hands on a BOSU, Stability ball or medicine ball will give you a big intensity challenge!
