Explosive and plyometric POWER & SPEED chest workout (advanced). Extreme pushups & some of the hardest bodyweight exercises, but very good for explosive strength, speed & power. SEE also the NEW video for a BIGGER push ups workout/routine with MORE variations: Calisthenics: 10-15 Crazy Extreme Push Ups 2013: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=naRaVsFn_g4. Chest and triceps are primary muscles worked. Shoulders and core secondary. A strong core and body tension is required to make these push ups.

Help & Advices:
These are advanced exercises. To start working with explosive strength and plyometrics I suggest beginning with explosive push ups pushing off the floor, clap push ups, Jump push ups etc. Once practised, a great challenge will be clap behind the back push up, getting to this point will make notice what kind of explosive speed and power that will be required. Speed and coordination is very significant. After some training go on with superman push ups etc. Be sure to practise on soft ground (grass for example).
For a strong core different planches and shaolin / muy thai / lalanne push ups can be practised. Superman and Aztec pushups are two of the hardest in the world, and two of the most explosive. Working a plyometric SET is very intense, this also involves a lot of coordination. But it is a very effective combo of working strength & cardio simultanously in a short time.
