Lunge So if you are just starting out, I would suggest stepping one foot back into the lunge first. Here are a few points to note for the lunge:
Yoga pushup You may choose to skip the lunge and come straight into the upper pushup position. I would only recommend this if your hands could touch the floor when you were in the flat back, because you want your palms grounded as you jump back. Your palms should be right under the shoulders and your elbows should be tucked into your sides in this position.
From the upper pushup position, lower down into chataranga. Remember to keep your elbows tucked into your sides. You would see that this makes the pushup harder and makes your core works more. When you lower down, your body should not touch the floor, but just hover right above the ground to work those muscles more.
Next, we will be going into the upward and downward dog!
