How many Push ups do you think any person should be able to do no matter their phsyical fitness. I personally can do 25 Push ups keeping form and going at a reasonable speed…not 5 per sec like alot of people who do 100… If I can do 25 started being able to do 1 (rofl) in only a matter of weeks… when Im 290lbs
How many can you do\ how many do you think anyone should be able to do…
I don’t think there is a ‘should be able to do’ for anyone, regardless of their relative level of fitness. Some people have strengths, some don’t. I’m a puss when it comes to wide-grip pullups (18 non-stop, last attempt) and chinups (23 non-stop, last attempt). But I can pump out the pushups. Also, range of motion counts for a lot. Pushups off the hands all the way down is way different than from bars all the way down. Also, hand placement is another factor, but I digress…
Wide, 85 non-stop
Shoulder, 90 non-stop
Narrow, 70 non-stop
Staggered, 70 non-stop
130 in 2 min’s with hands on ground, 95 w/ bars.
200 in 5 min’s with hands on ground, 125 w/ bars.
That all said I’ll leave you with this… pushups are about as much technique as they are strength and endurance. Finding the right muscles to activate when during the range of motion is KEY to pumping them out.
