Overview

The plyo push up is an explosive of the traditional push up that helps to build power and strength in the chest, shoulders, and triceps. To do a plyo 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 nearly touches the ground, then explosively push back up to the starting position. As you push up, extend your legs so that you are in a pike position with your toes pointed. Repeat for 10-12 reps.
