    Pushups .....

    is incorporating pushups almost everyday except like two or three days a week too much of a workout ...... i wanna get a nice pump for cancun ... i leave march 12th.... like after doing chest lets say on a monday, tuesday do back, wednesday shoulders AND pushups, thursday arms AND pushups, friday legs, saturday pushups only, sunday rest.... too much????

    im not talking going nuts with it, just like 4 or 5 sets of like 30 good ones .... just a thought .... dunno if it will help or hurt

    A pump is a temporary response to training. Therefore, if you wanna look pumped for cancun, do push-ups and pump up before leaving your hotel for the beach/pool.

    I use push ups two times during the weeks workout. A set or two before chest day to get the blood going, then, an attempted set after chest workout to see if Ive really gone to failure. If I can do a good set of pushups easily after chest, then I need to go back and finish off chest. If your tryin to get a pump before cancun (I dont think he's referring to the temporary pump, but meant throw size on) step up your entire routine. Doing alot of pushups in between chest days is not gunna throw on extra size, and depending on how trained you are, you could be overworking, and causing extra breakdown, and somewhat hindering you from puttin on size. Unfortunately, pushups arnt gunna help u bulk last minute.
