    We all know the Fighter Pull-up Program and many of us used it to gain some serious strength, but my question is, is there an alternative version of the program with Push-ups?

    To my knowledge there isn't anything like the FPP for push ups. However, the hit the deck program and others from naked warrior are effective for push ups.

    Mike Perry at Skill of Strength was doing some experiments with this at one point. I’ve heard him talk about it, but I don’t know if he ever wrote anything down.

    Long ago on a different forum Pavel T commented that it should work for other exercises.

    I was doing it with dips for a while but on a three/week schedule and that seemed to work well.

    As luck would have it, not only did I remember where Mike talked about his fighter push up program, but it was on the strongfirst podcast

    I do it for push-ups. I have also used it for running.

    To summarize my contribution in these two threads and my experiences:

    1. the volume of push-ups is high and I can only do it for 3 weeks at a time before my elbows start to get sore
    2. GTG style works better for me
    My training log has an example of using it for running
