Explosive Push Up Variations - Turning Strength to Power

For those looking to turn strength into power, here are a few explosive push up variations.

In order of difficulty:
  • Hand Clap
  • Chest Clap
  • Hip Clap
  • Behind the Back Clap

Another slightly more advanced variation: Plyo Superman Push up

Choose one of the above and keep the reps low (3-6).  Focus on speed and exploding off the floor over fatiguing the muscle. Immediately upon hitting the floor, explode into your next rep. Give yourself ample time to rest between each set.
