I just did 55
What qualifies as a "military" pushup?
Arms at shoulder length apart, palms to ground, fingers pointing forward.
Lower whole body with only palms and feet tips touching ground.
Pretty much a standard push up
The military also lets you do them as fast as you want... as long as your form is fine.
50 in 60 seconds, not sure how many I can do to failure
Do you lift off while doing them that fast?
I recently did a qualification for security job. 63 in 60 secs. The guy said I was one of the few doing them right. Other people were trying to not even break their elbows. I was touching the ground on all of them.
Being skinny kicks ass when it comes to military pushups.
I usually come close to about 1cm off the ground from my chest.
It strains muscles harder then hitting the ground with the chest.
I never see anyone at the gym doing push ups do they help build muscle or just endurance?
When bulking, I use them throughout the day for cell volumization (supplying energy to working muscles through the ATP process and an increase intramuscular hydration).
I don't mean I actually put my whole chect on the ground, but I do go all the way down so that I can feel the ground on my nipples. It makes me randy.
I like doing them with my feet elevated on something..
I can do about 5 and then i realize how fucking ghey they are and i stop...
I do that as well. Put my feet on a chair and just go at it.
How so? Everyone told me to only lower til my chest is about a fist hight from the ground.
I would think being thicker would be an advantage.
50 or so
you weigh less so you have less weight to move. i thought that was simple.
best i did was 67 about a month ago. that's in a minute.
Not on a physical fitness test.
i thought you meant handstand push ups..
Did you read the rest of what I wrote?
(luckily... cuz that would suck). We all used to pop EPH 833 before the tests
typically weighing less would mean you have less muscle so the ratio of weight/muscle would probably negate that argument
