Plyo Push-Ups are preferable to the Bench Press, because they take the shoulder through a larger range of motion without the stress of heavy weight. Plus, this exercise develops chest explosiveness that baseball players need for powerful hitting.
- Assume push-up position, then lower body until chest almost touches ground
- Explosively drive body up by fully extending arms
- Land with hands shoulder-width apart; immediately perform next rep
- Perform continuously for specified reps
