Don't measure your sets by reps, rather go until failure.

Training to failure is to continue repetitions to the point of momentary muscular failure. Failure is not the point where you think you cannot do another rep, it is the point where you physically can not complete another repetition.

Training to failure should be emplyed in all aspects of training including cardio. By training to failure, one fatigues enough of the muscle fibres to prevent another rep. This increases muscle endurance, strength and power.

Your first set of reps can be used as a warm up where you do not continue until failure.

If you slow your reps down or adjust your body position you may be able to reach failure in the 8-12 range.

Take crunches for example, if you position your arms at the side of your head and complete each repetition slowly (about 2 seconds for each rep) you will be able to reach failure sooner.

Also for press ups slow down the motion and add an incline. Elevate your feet by using the edge of the boxing ring or a bench.

Same goes for chin ups, slower reps means failure sooner.

I don't worry about rep range. I don't even count while performing calisthenics, my trainer counts for me so we can monitor progress. When I'm doing my reps I'm just concentrating on doing as much as I physically can.

Slow down, slow up.

There are specific exercises you can use for explosiveness.

Clap hand press ups are great for explosiveness, and if you're finding them easy you can try triple clap push ups



Or you can try the medicine ball punch
