If you were looking for a way to build more explosive power in your chest and shoulders, today is your lucky day! We are doing Banded Clapping Push-Ups for the first component of class.
This means that you'll hook a band across the squat rack set to a position 1-2 feet off the ground. You will get into a Push-Up position with the band resting across the bottom of your sternum (or the bottom of your sports bra). This will assist you in bringing your weight off the ground and allow you to explosively push up so that you can leave the ground long enough to clap your hands.
This is also a fantastic way to scale/modify Push-Ups during a workout so that you can still complete the reps as they're written. It is possible to just cut the number of Push-Ups down if need be as well.
Love you bye!
