From time to time I like to do the "Bring Sally Up" pushup challenge. I usually put this video on, so that I can track how much I last.

I am able to do sets of 30-60 pushups, depending on the day, but I find that I'm not able to last more than about 2:40 of this challenge.

What kind of exercises should I do, in order to be able to improve my time?

First you need proper technique. Elbows close to body, forearms still, back stretched, blade-bones proper position... Kelly Starrett did some videos on that.

According to muscles - when I'm failing, I know where the pain is located. From that, usually I know what to train. If I have to bet - deltoids, upper chest, triceps. But if someone argue about abs - I agree as well.
