3. Keeping your back nice and straight, brace your core and lower your chest towards the floor by bending your elbows, keeping them close to your sides as you do so

4. When your chest gets to about 1 inch from the floor, hold the position briefly before pushing yourself back up to the starting position, ensuring your back remains straight throughout the entire motion
