Is this ok or should I concentrate in 1 rep max bench and 1 clap push up.
By the way I only train for fun but kind of would like to know if I'm doing it right.
I would say that you almost always regardless of reps and sets should use max effort.
However if you combine for instance Squats and Jumps then you should keep the total number of reps down or the purpose will be lost. For instance if you Squat 10 reps and then jump 10 reps it is more a conditioning (GPP) exercise than strength/explosiveness.
Think a few jumps/clapping pushups would suffice. I don't know if anyone knows the exact formula for combining drills like this.
I am pretty sure that 3+3 works at least. 5+3 works as well.
