Make your push-up go airborne and you will boost its benefits. Launching your upper body requires more muscle power and effort from your heart. But it is a toughie, so before you try, make sure you can do three to five classic push-ups with textbook form.
Bend your elbows slightly when you land to absorb some of the impact. Warm up with a set of regular push-ups first. A good goal is to try to get through two to three sets of three to five reps.
How to nail it: Start on the floor in plank on your palms. Push into palms to explode body off the floor (feet stay planted), clapping hands if possible. Land in start position with elbows soft. Repeat.
