I'll try when I get back from work tonight, I'm not about to start doing press-ups in my suit.

I guess I'll have to report back then. It used to be quite a few, but what with focusing on other activities and quitting the gym a few years back, I'm not sure I can reach the same level now.

I can do 9 really nice push-ups..then about 4 shitty-lookin ones...then my arms shake and I fall over.

I'm a fat lazy fuck it seems. :D

Good to know more about myself! I used to be able to do more than 9...like... I remember when I was like 9-10ish I did 100 once as a bet. Now I can do 9.

WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO ME?!

WHAT YEAR IS THIS?!

I'm old.

If you can't do at least 15 push-ups, that's pretty fucking shameful.

Just did 20, and even that is pathetic. When I was regularly working out I could reach 35-40.

On the flip-side, I can do 3 sets of 20 sit-ups, which is pretty damn impressive if you ask me.

I could do 15-20 about a year ago. I don't know how many I can do now. Probably about 10.

I beg to differ, I think you cannot do 1 million push-ups.

I think you can only do less than 1million >.<

1million is crazy talk!

26 is my record, as far as I can remember, but I don't expect to get any better - I don't exercise at all because I long since quit basketball.

Five at any random time, ten to fifteen if I'm at school/work or in a fit mood.

If I had to push it to my limit I could probably do 20....but it'd be hard work and I would eventually slack off and wouldn't go low enough when going down.

Latest fitness test I did 75 push-ups in a minute.

Handstand push ups is where it is at, now there is a challenge. Good fun.

The most I have ever done at the moment is 41, It was gym class of my freshmen year and the person who got closest to 50 push ups got to sit around while everyone else ran two laps around the gym.

I'm a little shocked at some of the really high numbers I've seen. Are you guys doing them properly or just dropping a few inches before pushing back up?

I was always taught that you're meant to imagine someone has got their fist clenched on the floor, under your chest and you are meant to drop until you hit it, and then push back up.

I do two sets of 100 each day.
Except when I'm too tired.
But I'm trying to start doing more.

40 is a sitch. I can bench press 40 reps of 47.5 kg.

Right, I've just tried and managed 28 in one go. If I really pushed myself, I could get into the mid-30s, but I got lazy and gave up.

Depends. Anyone who actually does push-ups regularly or trains bench press should be able to sail through 40.

As a benchmark, I'd say I'm in decent all-around shape, but I do neither of those things. Lemme check how many I can do: 34

So 40 is pretty realistic for anyone who really trains them. I was doing that a few years back, and I broke 70.

I've increased my push ups by a lot over the past month...i used to only be able to do like 5 or so, but now i can do around 20. i've been using this program you all might be interested in called One Hundred Push Ups...it's supposed to only take six weeks to build your strength to be able to do 100, but for me, arms and chest are hard to build, but on their other program (Two Hundred Sit Ups), i've increased my sit ups from about 15 to almost 75 in a few weeks. it all depends on your genetics i guess.

(those are free btw...they've also got a 50 pull ups & 200 squats program)
