Plyometric push-ups

Start on an even surface and complete a traditional push-up.

Then, in a big explosive motion, push up hard enough to come off the floor – even TRYING to do this works you out and you’ll be surprised at how quickly you can progress. Take a breath and repeat as often as you can.

Remember, you want to be continuing each exercise for the full 60 seconds – so even if you have to stop for a second, keep going when you can get your breath back until your one-minute interval is up.

Rest for 30 seconds then move onto the next one.
