Keg Power Presses build explosive forward pushing strength from the standing position
You should be doing them. It will be pretty rare when you're ever pushing something or someone away from you while you're lying on your back. Power needs to be transfered through your feet. With an exercise like this you're also constantly engaging your grip which is also important for developing strength you can control. Pushing and pulling ability becomes more balanced as well.
You can read more about Keg Power Presses in Keg Conditioning by Dave Lemanczyk which is a book I highly recommend.
