Athletes need to get off the bench press and start moving their bodies in space. I believe bench pressing has it's place but athletes need to perform other types of exercises if they want to perform up the level of their highest potential in the field. Aztec push ups are a great tool to spice up your push up routine. This will develop the explosive muscles and aid in the recruitment of fast twitch muscles. If you are an advanced athlete, give Aztec push ups a try.
