Obviously I’m a bit confused. I recently read an article here on T-Nation (I forget which one) where it suggested taking the weight X sets X reps=total poundages. That seemed simple enough but then i got bored and compared my weight lifting poundages to pushup weight X reps X sets.
Needless to say I found out something very interesting…for example if I do, say 400 pushups a day at a bodyweight 215 so probably a push up wieght at 150 I got 60000 lbs. Compared to my bench weight of 275X4X6=6600 lbs…it seems like pushups because of there pure volume cause me to do more work…what am i doing wrong with the formulas? am I looking at this differently than i’m supposed to?
Thanksf for your help and answers
