Or better two squat jumps w/ minimal time on ground then go pull off ground. If going for a high % max 1 clap push-up, rest 8-12 secs and then press. Lot of raw benchers do that method or do a snap back shoulder/pec push then bench.

I wouldn't do it or program it a lot, sporadically or depending on how well you stick to the principles of the conjugate method, you may only see that movement once every 3-12 weeks.

It's preference and association...nothing is perfect.

Uh, so... do you like my idea or not?

In a roundabouts way...yes, JUST not more than once every few training mini-cycles or meso-cycles.
