you guys probably think this is dumb of me to ask this but how do you do a plyometric pushup?

Take your regular number of pushups, double that, and add thirty.

Convert to metric, get it? :D

Ahh, never mind. I'll show myself out.

I have no idea what that is but I like the pushup bars, they help get a deeper stretch especially for guys like me with big chest.

clapping when you do push ups is a plyometric push up

alright heres as good of a description as i can give. either a clap pushup, clap behind the back pushup, a medicine ball throw to a pushup, or this. get in pushup position and go down to the ground. Force yourself off the ground so that your body lifts off the ground. When you are in the air, bend your elbows so that you can hit with 90 degree arm position and then force yourself off the ground as fast as you can, like right when you hit it.
