This goes with the sit-ups thread. Same thing, different poll. Since upper and middle body strength tend to vary, I thought it was important to have seperate polls, not judging overall fitness by either (or even both, there's still a lot of stuff like cardiovascular fitness and such that I have no idea how to poll for).

I usually do about 25 push-ups before fatigue catches up with me.

OK, two of these polls is enough. Anyone trying to jump on the bandwagon will get tossed off it.

I can do aboot 30 push-ups a minute, which is actually quite sad for me. I start struggling at 6. :P
I am out of shape like playdoh warped from the sun. :D

I used to go at about 30 per day. Now I'm fat and stuff, though I could possibly do as many as 20.

My upper body strength pales in comparison to my abdominal abilities. My meagre arms and chest can provide no more than 30 push-ups at the minute.

About 60 half push-ups (arms bent 90º at the elbow).
About 20 standard push-ups (palms tucked in beside chest, elbows facing upward, chest abt 1 inch above ground).
About 12 diamond push-ups (standard push-ups, with both thumbs and index fingers forming a diamond shape).

Not too bad for a 15-year-old. ;)

I can do 100 push-ups in one hour! I drive a Dodge Stratus! I am a division manager! I have twenty people under me!


Actually I never timed how many push-ups I can do in any certain amount of time. But in probably under two minutes I can do 15 normal+15 wide+15 triangle/diamond. I drive a Shadow and at the moment I'm unemployeed.

Haha man, we did those all the time in my gym class, I can do the normal ones and the ones with the arms in at the sides but the one I can't do is the ones where you put your hands where your head would land and make like a dimond or triangle shape and you have to make your nose poke through it and hit the ground. I can barely do one of those, hahaha. :D
