Pushup Variations for Strength
 
The basic pushup is too easy at this point to be a strength exercise anymore. I am going to use the Elevated, Pseudo Planche, the Wall Assisted Handstand and the One legged Pushup due to the increased difficulty of these variations. What other variations would you suggest I do in order to meet my goal of increased strength?

Have you looked into depth pushups?

1. Stand upright. Push barbell or dumbbell up overhead. Increase weight as necessary.
2. Lie on bench or floor. Push barbell or dumbbell up. Increase weight as necessary.

if your long term goal revolves around ME bodyweight, horizontal pushing strength, you might want to devote your efforts specifically to planche work.
