Inchworm Push-Ups

A. Perform 3 push-ups.
B. Then with legs straight, walk hands toward feet, ending in a standing hamstring stretch position.
C. Walk hands back down until you're in the push-up position again. That's one rep. Repeat the push-up-to-inchworm pattern.

Make it easier: Drop to knees for the push-ups, then move back onto toes for the inchworm.
