The footage starts with the Labrador sitting in front of his owner’s legs as he does sit ups, with both of his paws resting on his right knee.

Magnus then assists with the downward-facing dog yoga manoeuvre by mirroring his owner as he presses his face to the floor while keeping his back legs straight.

And then as the man does more push ups, Magnus hi-fives his left and right hands alternately as he moves upwards.
