    Elevated push-up use different aspects of the muscles in the shoulder than standard push-ups. Additionally, more of your body weight is transferred to your arms (doing the work) as opposed to your toes (more or less just holding you up) so your arms/shoulders have to work harder. As a blanket statement I would say that yes elevated push-ups are a good exercise. Don't do them to the exclusion of other exercises though.

    I think you would get a better work out running up and down them. Perhaps wearing an SCBA with some hose
