Kettlebell plyo push-up

The kettlebell plyo push-up is an explosive upper-body movement that uses a kettlebell primarily as a platform for the hands. A short step, dumbbell, or other stationary object could also be used in place of the kettlebell. It can be performed for reps or time, either for low reps to build explosive power or for higher reps for conditioning.


  1. Builds explosive pushing strength
  2. Precursor to more advanced plyometric push-up variations
  3. Builds strength in the chest, triceps, shoulders, and core
