I could prob do about 150ish before I lose form.

That is how i did push ups but Karate. On gradings we would go to 250, "Pain" is a perfect description. I cheated at times but the machines i did it with did them properly.

My upper body and core strength is my two main areas of strength. Although i cannot do as many as i did during Karate i recently did roughly 100 proper push ups.

In some strength challenge i did not to long ago i did 59 in 60 seconds, I have no idea how and haven't got very close since. They were bound to be not the greatest technique but they were still fairly good.

Pushups are one of the exercises i am strongest in.

I have to give credit to WL2FU's pushup experiment. I went from 30 to 70 after doing the program a couple times. I do them on my knuckles at a moderate speed while maintaining form. Moderate speed = 70 in about 2 minutes, or close to 1 second down, 1 second up, no momentum. My goal is to get back to 120, which is where I was in high school. Of course I weighed a measly 170 then. 205 now.

I've obviously gotten alot stronger since when i made this thread.

couple months ago knocked out 75 in one minute, wearing heavy sweat pants/shirt, 30 seconds after our sit up test. this was for my PED class.

Im even strong now, no idea how many could do in a row. Maybe....emphasis on maybe...150, it would obviously take longer than a minute though

Are we talking about full fledged pushups here like chest touching the ground? There is no way you can do 73 in a minute like that maybe if you do the short burst ones but not full ones.
