The most common type of plyometric pushup is the clap pushup. The objective of this one, as the name implies, is to clap your hands in the air at the top of your push-up and return them safely to the ground before you smash your teeth in. Anything involving plyometrics requires rapid, explosive force to give you ample airtime to perform a clap, two claps or even three claps between reps. While speed is important, getting your body high enough is what you really need to work on. An easy progression to the clap pushup is to perform plyo pushups without clapping until you’re powerful enough to feel confident that you won’t face plant. In the meantime, practice on a soft surface just in case you miss your landing. As you develop more speed and power, you’ll be able to fit in so many claps between landings that you’ll be applauding yourself.
