... help what?

Help you do more pushups? If you want to do more pushups then do lots of pushups (correct ones, not those sissy knee pushups). Do as many as you can, rest for a few minutes, do as many as you can, rest, ect. until you can't even do one. Rest the next day (or until you're not sore any more, whichever comes last), eat lots of protein, then the day after that go do the same as day 1.

Ex.
Mon: Lots of pushups.
Tue: Rest and eat.
Wed: Lots of pushups.
Thur: Rest and eat.
ect...

Of course, that's just the simplest way. There're alot of convoluted pushup programs out there, do some looking and I'm sure you'll be able to find one if it's really THAT big of a deal. If I remember correctly there was a good thread in the training logs section quite a while ago where someone was trying out what looked like a really solid pushup program with periodization and percentages and whatnot - I'm sure you could find it if you looked.

Right on. Do what he said, he summed it up rather good. Progressive overload will make you stronger as long as the volume remains high.

I can vouch for the methodology these guys are promoting. In a bit over a year, I've gone from 40 pushups max to about 85 when I'm well rested. That's not a lot, I know guys who can do upwards of 200; but that's a 100% increase for myself.
