Hi Simon,

They are just extensions.   A push is usually referred to as a shot with less spin and close to the table.  A chop has more spin and is sometimes played from away from the table as well.

When you are close to the table the strokes are the same, just with the chop you come under the ball more to generate the spin. The chop from further away can be see in our lesson on the Forehand Chop.
