git push forces the push. If you don't use it, you'll see an error like this:
To firstname.lastname@example.org:roseperrone/project.git ! [rejected] master -> master (fetch first) error: failed to push some refs to 'email@example.com:roseperrone/project.git' hint: Updates were rejected because the remote contains work that you do hint: not have locally. This is usually caused by another repository pushing hint: to the same ref. You may want to first merge the remote changes (e.g., hint: 'git pull') before pushing again. hint: See the 'Note about fast-forwards' in 'git push --help' for details.
