A simple array of intermediate press up exercises for you to try:
|NORMAL 1||WIDE ARM 2||CLOSE ARM 3|
|RAISED REAR 4||FRONT RAISED 5||ELBOWS TUCKED IN 6|
Use this table to measure your progress. The numbers on the side relate to the different press up exercises, i.e. number 4 will be raised rear press ups. Dependent on your fitness level,you may find that you only want to do the first 3 exercises, record the date and then the amount of reps for each method of press up that you performed.

The members area has over 20 different styles of press ups plus a number of different training programs to improve your upper body.
