The different hand positions work different muscles in the chest and arms. Do try to catch a little air as you move your hands from side to side to work toward a plyometric push-up.
- Start in a plank on your knees. Move your left hand out to the side, then bend both elbows, lowering your torso toward the mat. Straighten your arms to return to a plank. This completes one rep.
- Switch your hands, bringing in the left hand while stepping the right hand wide — this is where you should try to jump off your hands. Perform a push-up.
- Continue alternating side to side for 10 reps.
