    I used to belong to a health club that competed every year with other health clubs in a superstar type of compitition. One of the events was how many pushups you could do in 60 seconds. I did 74 pushups and came in 5th place. The winner did 108 in 60 secs.

    When I do them, 3 sets of 20. My fourth set about 12 to 15 cause I'm exhausted.

    The best way I found to go up on pushups is to get a deck a cards, shuffle them turn them upside down. Flip one over let's say it's a Ace of Diamonds, then you do 15 diamond pushups, flip the next its a 5 of spades, then you do 5 regular pushups, so on and so on. If you can make it all the way through the deck than you rule. I never made it through the whole deck. This is a good one to do with friends when ya working out.

    i can do 80-90 after a 20 min. run, thats the best tiem for growth, it is also good to hit 3x25 push ups after chest days in the gym.
    peace

    Shit, I can only get like 80. Don't really time myself, just go them non stop. I've got a good bench, but it's my triceps that get tired with pushups. Does being 265 make pushups more difficult? And I do 3 sets of 20 pullups on back day.

    I remember My dad used to make me do Mad pushups when I was really young, I think that's one of the reasonsthat my chest strength & size was way ahead of the rest of my body. He made me do them like this:
    1.Palms directly under the shoulders
    2.Do 1 rep , lay down rest two seconds,Do 2 reps and rest two seconds,Do 3 reps, lay and rest two seconds.....and so on.
    3.Remember the last set of the number you completed before failure and that is your level status.1-4 was poor,5-7 average,7-9 Conditioned ,9 and above excellent.
    I believe the book that my father took this out of was a 70's US military training book with floor exercise executions. I remember hittin' level 12 when I was a senior in high school.Give it a shot when you get a chance to see how you score.

    I did 67 straight when I was 10 years old in camp to win some pushup contest hehe... I doubt I've improved much in the past 10 years anyway, I like dips instead. Once after 4 sets of cable flyes supersetted with dips, I did 27 straight on the 5th set when my friend dared me to go all out... I didnt expect over 15, I think it was one of those mind over matter with adrenaline things.

    BTW world record for pushups in 1 minute is 199 by some french guy I forgot his name. Brit Paddy Doyle has 100 world and euro records in endurance himself, with stuff like most pushups in 1 hour, most 1-arm pushups in 30 minutes, did the wall sit for 4 hours, running a marathon with a 50 pound plate on his back, etc... stuff like that... very crazy... but if you look at his physique you wouldn't tell if he works out so its upto the individual if its worth it. Personally when I walk down the streets I want every person in my way to know exactly what sport I participate in -- bodybuilding -- the best!
