Plyometric Push-up

This is one of my favorites. Start with the standard push-up position and go down in a controlled manner. Then press your upper body up in the air as high as you can (you can clap your hands to add more difficulty). Do 3 sets of 7-8 reps.

Pros:

  • This is a great upper-body builder, will blast your pectorals, triceps and shoulders.
  • Also a great core workout.

Cons:

  • Can be noisy.
  • Tough on wrists so make sure you adhere to strict form when performing those. You may also want to use a gym mat.
