What on earth are you smoking?

How good am I? I dont get that question much, but I do sets of 50 at a time... normally 200 a day, different ones (hands wide, diamonds, claps..)

Some boxers do soooo many more, I once heard Vic Darchinyan does 1,500 a day. (I doubt all at once lol!!) more likely sets of 200 every hour or something.

How good are you?

I'm so good that no one even believes how good I am. I think I could do them competitively...Maybe it has to do something with the fact that I've been doing them since I was 15 on regular basis without ever taking a break.

If you make me drop right now I can easily do 200 in one set.

When I wanted to get big in school and didnt have money for the gym all I used to do was pushups. Sets of 100x10, two or three times a day. So that's 2000-3000 push ups a day. Id do a 100, take a 2-3min break. When I reach 500 Id take 15min off, then continue with 2-3min breaks.

I stopped doing that though since I just go to the gym now. But on my off days I still do 100x6.

Geeze, thanks - you just made me feel like a total wimp, lol. I try to do a 100 during the day at the office and I thought I was Mr. Bigman for just doing that!

Most people can't do 100. But yea, push ups is that odd thing that I am very very good at.

On the other hand I can't run for my life. If you were to tell me to run around the block right now, I would have to stop at least once to get some air. Its damn embarrassing...really need to work on that.

Wow thats impressive. I've really started doing them now. Am doing around 100 to 110 press up's a day. Doing 10 to 20 in one set.

You think if i keep doing them I will improve and be able to get more & more out in one go?

And is true they also improve abs aswell as shoulders & biceps?

Some people are naturally good at push ups. The world record is about 10,000 non stop. I was never that good at push ups in my mid 20s I had worked my way up to about 70. These days I would have a hard time doing 20 push ups.

I can do about 70 something straight in one set, but that is pushing myself. I could maybe even get past 80, seeing as I have gotten much stronger of late.
