Stressing really pressing the hands and
bar forcefully in the fully contracted position . Trying to make all upper back
muscles standout including Christmas treeing the lower back and horse shoeing
the triceps . 2 sets of 12-15 reps inserted in a push/pull routine .

Guy looks kind of
like Chet Yorton ...
As a person with herniated discs in his neck I would never recommend doing pushups with a band around one's neck to anyone. However, I would and could see doing them with a band around one's upper back, but around the neck looks like a recipe for disaster. This is right up there with wrestler's bridge pressing.....LOL!
The band pictured has a max tension of 15# . The wrestlers bridge is full body weight with no BB or
added weight . If your neck and upper carriage are that fragile , then you shouldn't be resistance training
anyway .This in no way is comparable to the bridge press . Sticks
With all due respect Sticks, unless you have herniated discs in your neck, you have no idea what you're talking about. My neck is not fragile Sticks. That's what helped me from being more seriously injured in my accident, but it doesn't negate the fact that placing a band around one's neck, where herniated discs might be located, while trying to maintain that position, and while also doing pushups, causes me pain. Stick to drawing and exercise information and lay off the medical advice of that which you do not know, Sir. You just need to "stay in your lane" on this one Sticks. No offense.

Advice taken and I suggest you do the same . Every time you rack a squat or
are at the tail end of a set of heavy benches you put vastly more pressure on
your neck then what I pictured in the band push-up . Repositioning of the band
was mentioned a couple of posts ago and you have a good point if the level of
herniation has a resistance band directly above it . I've included tips in the past
with you in mind as the primary beneficary .Will I cease and desist ? Hell no , it's
always up to trainee discretion to use the info or not . Best Regards Sticks
