As of yet, I can't do these, though gamer push-ups and three phase push-ups seem to be the best to work on after I get good enough at negatives (which is coincidentally the first half of gamer push-ups).

So push as fast as you can and breathe out as fast as you can to push your self up to standing from a slight incline push up. Once the angle gets easy, make the angle a little sharper and do it again.
I would also try negative push ups (I've been doing this lately with single arms in an attempt to be able to do one arm push ups).
Basically get yourself in push up position and slowly lower yourself. Do this as many times as you can (even if you can't push up into this position, you can place your hands on the floor and step backward until you're in position, or start with a knee push up and when you're in the up position raise your knees).
Negatives are a great way of gaining strength!
Update: I started negative push-ups. This morning I was able to do two sets of three. The last few I couldn't lower myself smoothly, so I sort of just fell at the last bit. Just now I did four (not in a row), all without falling--speed was consistent all the way down, and I was able to count to four or five (seconds? Probably quicker, though) on the way down. I'm pretty happy with this so far.
Mark has YouTube videos showing proper form, have you watched any of those?
