You didn't answer the question. HOW do you do a plyometric push up?

You've probably done it, you just don't know it.  Push yourself up fast enough to clap your hands before you go down.

You can work up to that by explosively "pushing up" to a few inches on a block, then down again. Also, you could go the "girlie" pushups from your knees.  Plyometrics takes the girlie out of that type of pushup.
