    Any PT guys know how frequently pushups cause muscular embalances? Or what kind of problems over training pushups can cause?

    I've seen a few programs to reach the 100 rep mark but I would think the time it take to reach that point could be better spent on other exercises.

    I'll bow to the professionals, but pushups actually have a tendency to fix a ton of imbalances because you engage your core and a lot of the stabilizing muscles in your rotator cuff, etc. If you bench a lot, pushups are a great deload.

    I wouldn't worry too much about further imbalances because of the loading issue. Once you get past ~15in row with regular pushups, you're really working muscular endurance with a bit of hypertrophy. Maybe, if you start doing exotic variations and loading, you might run into problems.

    Obviously, you should work your back too...

    And, in all seriousness, everyone should read this article: http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_...article_period

    It really is the best pushup article I've ever read.

    That was a cool article. I just sent it to a bunch of people!

    @speedy- I've done a few of those pushup programs, and yeah they can get pretty hard core. And yes, they will take away from your other exercises! But it can be good for changing things up for a few weeks, and giving your other muscle groups a break.

    I always just listen to my body on those types of things. I'm getting too old to stay on them for too long. So when I get to the point where I'm sore all the time and not getting any recovery, I take a break or move onto something else.
