Knee Tuck Push Ups......someday!  from www.PTworkout.com ~ "Similar to Mountain Climbers in motion, this exercise will engage your abdominals while working your chest, triceps and legs.  Starting from the pushup “ready” position, inhale as you bend your elbows to lower your chest until it grazes the ground, then immediately extend your arms and exhale while pulling your right knee forward to your chest while keeping your left leg stable.   After you complete your ascent to the “ready” position, extend your right leg behind you and return your foot to the ground as you lower your chest back to the ground. Repeat in reverse on the other side." by candice
