1. Hand Release Pushups
Hand release pushups are similar to normal pushups except one key difference. You take your hands off of the ground at the bottom of each rep to ensure you’re getting your chest all the way to the floor instead of cheating yourself out of those last couple inches. After placing your hands back on the floor, press up like you would normally until your arms are fully locked out at the top. Want to kick up the intensity? Turn these hand release pushups into explosive pushups by pressing up hard enough that your hands “jump” off the ground a couple of inches at the top.
