For any antagonist exercise, reverse the primary exercise, and keep the same angles and range of motion. For the pushup, that would be an inverted row with your hands on a fixed bar, with your feet elevated on a box such that your body is horizontal at the top of the row. A ring row (with hands on rings or a suspension trainer) would similarly reverse a ...

You should do some research on flat feet, and I think you'll see that it's not really anything to concern yourself with. I have rather flat feet myself, and have never noticed a problem except when others tell me I should deal with my flat feet.

I don’t think you can use a literal interpretation of that exercise description and superimpose “ladders” on top of it. As described, you won’t risk losing any benefit from the exercise if you modify it to fit your needs. In my opinion, you would be better off rotating each leg after each set. So, for instance, the sequence might be… Set 1 Right ...

I would understand touching one leg twice as one rep. So your actual ladder would look like this: 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 4 ... - because you are switching the legs
