Tip: How to Do the Side-to-Side Plyo Push-Up

Are you good at plyo push-ups? Good! Now try this variation.

With the side-to-side plyo push-up, place one hand on a stable elevated surface and keep the other arm on the floor. As with the all plyo push-ups, the goal is to project yourself explosively. In this variation, you switch hand positions in mid-air. Keep your glutes and abs tight.

Absorb the impact with your elbows at about 90 degrees. Do not lower the chest all the way to the ground.
