The Plyo Push-Up is a great way to add explosive work to your upper-body training program.

To perform the Plyo Push-Up, set up the same as with a standard Push-Up.

You want to create as much power as you can when you push yourself to the top. So much so, that your hands are actually going to leave the ground.

As your hands hit the ground you will lower yourself under control to the bottom position and repeat again.

The goal here is to create as much power as you can with every rep. If you have wrist issues, you may want to avoid this one.

You don't want to perform a bunch of reps on this one, as the goal is to train peak power.

A few sets of 4-8 reps should suffice.
