UFC Mag: Bang Out 20 Clap Push-Ups

If you can’t do 12 controlled chest-to-the-ground push-ups, start there. Then level up to push-up chest touches on a Smith machine. Set the bar to a height that allows you to execute 20 reps. From a push-up position, lower your body to the bar until it touches your chest, and then push yourself away from the bar as rapidly as you can, attempting to create as much distance as possible between your hands and the bar. Regrab the bar and repeat.

Rest for five days and then go at it again. This time set the bar to a lower height; continue in this fashion until you’re capable of doing explosive push-ups from the floor. When you feel you’re ready, add a clap at the peak of the movement.

“Incorporate supersets of bench presses and medicine-ball push passes into your chest workouts as well,” Soszynski suggests. “Aim at a specific target on the wall and do four to five sets with a 12-pound medicine ball.”
