Hey ladies, how many push-ups can you do? I joined the push-up challenge. I can currently do about 15. Smile

4 sets of 15 - 20 ... good for developing the chest! Keep up the good work. They get easier the more you do them!

I do have proper push up position. I've always had pretty good upper body strength, especially for a female. When I was training in martial arts I was doing several hundred a night (not at one time) and at the end of the night 50-100 without stopping. It does take time to build up to that!

Real push-ups or girl push-ups (on your knees)? I can do 20 girl push-ups and 10 real push-ups using proper form.

Last June I could do 2...that's right 2 proper pushups. Six months after my C-section I had no core to speak of. Now eleven months later, I can do 45 without stopping. Not bad for a 40 year old mother of 2 toddlers.

When I was heavier and couldn't put my weight on my hands, I bought some pushup handles that allowed me to do pushups without placing my palms on the ground.

I think the most pushups I've ever done was 35.

I had push up handles to start until I developed stronger wrists and forearms.

Here's a tip Marilyn...before you run out and buy them. If you have a set of free weights at home that give your knuckles clearance from the floor then try them with that first. You'll also be able to tell if your carpal tunnel will allow it. Try holding the weights at different angles until you find one that is comfortable for you. Don't "break" your wrists when you go down but keep them in line with your forearm.

Last time I recorded, I could do 30 good push ups before my arms started quivering. But recently in PE, there was a Push Up contest and I was neck in neck with the football player and I beat him and the other students. Slow and steady wins the race, it takes a lot of upper body strength and mental strength to keep on going.

push ups are a great exercise. Not only will it strengthen chest, back and arms, it is a great core workout. You should really try to do as many "real" push ups as you can before modifying on your knees to build your core.
