it really depends on your weight/height... lighter dudes can usually do much more with their own weight - used to have a guy in school, small, generally weak but with muscle - he could do almost indefinite push ups, and you should see the pull-ups - he was flying.

i'm 5'9 and 175 lbs... personal record is 100 (probably could've squeezed out maybe 10 more) of proper push-ups - all the way up and all the way down
