Set-up: The pushup walkout begins by having the individual standing with feet shoulder width apart and perform a toe touch allowing the knees to bend so you can reach the floor with the hands flat.

Action: Then walk your hands out to a stable plank position, keeping a stable back and not hyperextending. Make sure the surface is a non-slip surface for this exercise.

Return: Maintain a stable plank position, hinge at the hips and walk the hands back toward the feet and return to standing position.
