The power push up exercise is more advanced, but it can be really good for developing upper body explosiveness. Basketball players want to be explosive in all of their movements in the weight room, and this exercise really focuses in on that. This basketball exercise is a build up from regular push ups, so before attempting the power push up make sure that you have mastered the push up. Also make sure that when doing this exercise you are not sacrificing your form. If the exercise causes the player to have to cheat on their form, then switch to a lower box, or change to regular push ups.
