The push up is a great exercise to implement into your training program should you be wishing to build upper body strength, power and endurance. In the videos below you will see osteopath Heath Williams performing an incline push up that focuses on developing explosive pushing power. An inclination is a nice way to regress the exercise from the floor and allow one to focus on speed and power.

When looking to implement this into your training program, perform a number of sets with a rep range that allows you to perform this movement in an explosive manner. Find the rep range that allows you to maintain a fast movement and stop once your speed reduces.
