    What are your max push-ups you can do in a row?

    I think being able to do a lot of pushups in a row is good for those parties with the boys as someone is going to call you out on it saying they are stronger then you pound for pound 😂

    Push ups are not a strength test.... maybe load a bench press up of you want to really want to see. No one cares if a stick person can do tons of push ups or run a marathon.

    For me pushup is when your chest touches the ground every rep. Full rom not the half reps everyone and theyr mother cranks out by the hundreds. Ican probwbly do about 40-50 of those

    When I was 17, I once did 83 press up's in a row.

    Now I'm in my 30's, I weigh an extra 17kg, and I can do about 40 - 50 (but I had shoulder surgery 3 months ago).

    I'm acting in a play this weekend, and so just before I go out on stage, I do as many press up's as I can, so I'm a little out of breath on stage. If I had my way, I'd put a stationary bike backstage and peddle the fuck out of it, then jump down and do press up's before running out onto the stage.

    Actually what's the best exercise to very quickly get you out of breath? Burpees or something? The press ups work well though . . . and then I can really exaggerate my breathing on the stage.

    Aside from doing a few as part of a warmup on a chest day, what's the point?

    And if somebody is trying to say they're stronger than you, if you really want to get in a "dick measuring contest," why don't you just say something like "there's a gym that's open 24 hours just a few blocks away. Why don't we go over there and push some weight around?"

    They are good for endurance. If you are a fighter or athlete that needs strength endurance then they are pretty much a staple atleast in some sort of endurance circuit.

    Big bodybuilders are strong and confident and can overpower the average joe but when they get against someone who knows to fight a little and isnt half theyr size, the fact is most will gas out after a minute from carrying all the exess weight, muscles needing energy and no enduramce training

    So i wouldnt say they are useless

    I seen a guy on youtube just the night before last do a 1000 in one set. He would do 20-30 and then rest in the plank position. Thought that was pretty amazing feat. Shit I know I couldnt do it albeit I havent trained for push up endurance, ive trained for size and strength.
