Why Plyometric Push-ups?

Push-ups can be as easy or as hard as you want them to be. They can be done anywhere, by anyone, regardless of fitness level. Plyometric push-ups have additional dimensions.

Push-ups are known more as a sheer strength builder. But they can easily be adapted into an exercise that helps you develop power, coordination and activates more fast-twitch muscle fiber.

When building sheer, explosive power, more dynamic push-ups are an essential element to include in your Spartan toolbox of push-up variations.
