    recently ive been doing about 100-150 pushups before i go to bed everynight...now i know that doesnt seem like a lot but im 16 and not the strongest kid ever..i dont have access to a weight room for another month id say cause of it being so full at school right now but i do pushups before every night sleep...

    does this actually help my arm muscles and pecs develop..i mean if i continue to do this will i actually NOTICE a difference?

    no, you'll eventually need resistance as the body gets used to it. there's tons of other bodyweight exercises to do until you can get into a gym

    I would assume so, but, depending on your bodyweight, eventually you will need to add resistance.

    You can buy some really cheap weights and just train in a spare room or garage. You dont "need" a bench, rack etc to get newb gains at 16.

    navy seal workout. 200 pushups a day. First set to exhaustion. Just go to your school gym, who cares how crowded it is.
