Overview

The clap push up is an exercise that targets the chest. It is a of the traditional push up that adds an extra challenge by requiring you to clap your hands together at the top of the movement. This exercise is great for building strength and muscle mass in your chest, shoulders, and triceps, To do a clap push up, start in the standard push up position with your feet shoulder-width apart and your hands slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Bend your elbows and lower your body until your chest is just above the ground. Then, explosively push yourself up so that your arms are straight and your hands come together above your head. Clap your hands together and then lower yourself back down to the starting position, Repeat this for as many repetitions as you can. As you get stronger, you can increase the number of repetitions or the difficulty of the exercise by doing it on your toes or with a weight plate on your back.
