I did 120 this morning (60, 30, 20, 10). I usually do max effort p/u and s/u on Mondays.
I'm cheating. Assuming 16 waking hours a day, I totaled up what's needed for the month and then divided that up by 29 days. I'm going to shoot for 240/day but as long as I get ~7000 in the next 30 days I'll count it as a win.
Phrost, by the end of the month I will probably be cursing your name on a daily basis.
My chest hurts...my arms are dead...yes I am a muffin!
Soon my rotator cuff will be rehabbed, and I will make the entire push-up family beg for mercy on a regular basis once again.
This just in......My 9 year old son is more badass than most of you lazy fucks.
On Wednesdays my wife takes my daughter to gymnastics and I hang out with my son. Last night he wanted some ice cream and I told him he could have some if he did some pushups first. He was all for it. I was surprised at how good his pushup form was. The last time we did pushups together it was pretty crappy. But apparently they've been doing pushups in gym class every week and he's gotten his form down.
So he did four sets of pushups with a couple sets to failure. I was satisfied but he wanted to do situps too so I held his feet while he did three sets. This is where he impressed me. On the last set he did 25 or 30 and I thought he was just about done. Then he just started banging them out. He must have done 50 more situps. I had no idea he could crank out that many. I was proud and he got his chocolate ice cream.
Especially when we go visit my brother! His boy is 10 and looks like a whale humping a pillow when he tries to do pushups! I get to smile at my brother while he shakes his head. Good stuff!
That being said, your stomach may just be below your chest in that position. Try tightening your core/pillar throughout the set, being careful not to tense your shoulder or leg muscles in the process...
Bearing in mind she rarely does them, she took 'most pushups' in her grade during a recent physical challenge, and that's not gender-specific.
