What i mentioned initially comes back here. Power, speed, strength. All combined in this exercise. Yes, it is challenging and probably for the more advanced athlete, nevertheless working on your push ups is never a bad idea.
An explosive push up, like all explosive movements, will help and support your stability and can be easily transferred into other exercises. There are many movements that come into my CrossFit mind if i hear the word explosiveness. Think about it.
Add these exercises into your training and build strength, muscle and power.
