Push ups (how many can you do)

I was just screwing around at like 3 in the morning last night and attempted to do 50 push ups...pretty easily accomplished, but i remember when i couldnt do 40, so that lead to my current curiosity

how many push ups can you do?

i think i could probably bang out about 70 with basic form and going all the way down.

i know bruce lee used to do sets of 200 (i feel like a bitch) but he isnt human.

Don't go for the number. Form is the only way you gain real muscle. Our old coach use to make us do 50 perfect push ups. Anyone on the team didn't go down all the way, bent their back, etc. and you started all over again. It made you concentrate on form. Team would get close to fifty, one guy screws up and back to zero.......form, form, form.

Ouch. That is tough.

It depends.

Fast, 30-40, I haven't done them in a while.

Slow, 10 or so. I don't know. Slow ones are the harder ones.

Form assumed to be quality on both speeds.

Lifting one globe at a time!

Mac Danzig can kill two fighters with one bird feeder.

I can't do a lot of push ups, I remember having to do 80 after my 1st boxing class and I failed at like 68 or something. That shit was hard




What a stud
