Hand Clap Push Up Over View

The muscles that are targeted in hand clap push up are the chest, shoulders, and triceps.

There are many benefits to training the shoulder, chest, and arms. These muscles help to stabilize the shoulder joint, and they also help to generate power when we push or pull. Additionally, strong shoulders, chest, and arms can help to improve our posture and prevent injuries.

How to Do It?

  1. To perform a hand clap push up, start in a standard push up position.
  2. Lower yourself down to the ground, and then explosively push off of the ground and clap your hands together in mid-air.
  3. Return to the starting position and repeat.
  4. Make sure that you keep your core engaged throughout the entire movement to avoid injury.

Tips for Performing Hand Clap Push Ups

  1. Before attempting a hand clap push up, it is important to build up your strength and stability by performing regular push ups and other exercises that target the shoulder, chest, and arms.
  2. Once you have built up your strength, make sure that you warm up thoroughly before starting your workout.
  3. When performing the hand clap push up, be sure to keep your core engaged and avoid arching your back.
  4. If you feel any pain in your shoulders, chest, or arms, stop immediately and consult a doctor or certified personal trainer.
