Suspension Strap Plyo Push Up

  • Intermediate
  • Suspension Trainer
  • Chest

Setup instructions

1) Start with a high anchor point and attach the suspension strap - it should be a long length.

2) Go on all fours and place your feet through the handles.

3) Get in the plank position - from here, walk your hands forward and lift your hips up. Aim to have a straight line between your head, neck, legs and back.

Perform instructions

1) Slowly lower your chest to the ground - you should feel a stretch in the chest.

2) Now, push the ground away with enough force to make your hands become airborne.

3) Brace yourself for the impact by keeping a slight bend in the elbows.

4) Keep the momentum and lower yourself into the start of the push up.

5) Repeat.

Note: this is a high impact exercise on your wrists.
