Gorilla Push-Ups

Gorilla push-ups is a fun variation of plyometric push-ups such as clapping push-ups. This version of plyometric push-ups uses two BOSU balance trainers which allow you to spring a little further up from the balls. This extra push allows you to beat your chest or scratch your armpits like a gorilla or King Kong. The gorilla part of this exercise is really just for fun and to do something different but may also benefit you by forcing you to use more power while doing your push-ups.
