How many press ups can you do?

I was watching the gadget show the other night and I swear the bald guy did something like 80 press ups in a minute. I thought this was virtually impossible seeing as at the height of my fitness I could only do about 50. I could probably only do about 30 now.

So, how many can you do? Can anyone beat this guy?

Wasn't expecting many really!

I was just wondering why the wii fit system doesn't have something like this, lets say you don't do any excercise on it, you should then get a mii who doesn't have much strength and when you play the games the computer should make you rubbish so your friends beat you.

If you do say 50 press ups a day on the board it should make your mii much stronger therefore better in the games and able to beat your friends (assuming they do less than 50 a day).

Would make the game much more related to your actual fitness and give you more incentive to do things on it, ie it rewards you for doing push ups by making you better/faster in the games.

30 - 40 but 40 would be on a good day

I used to be able to do 30 odd but now more like 20 per minute. Everyone should do their age in pressups each day to keep the strength up :)

I do 530 a day, generally 140 reps, sometimes 160 - not sure thats the best way of doing em, but no probs so far

I started doing 30 about 1.5 years ago and worked up from that

The world record for most two-handed push back hand ups in one hour is 1,781 by Doug Pruden of Canada, set in 2005. The most non-stop: 10,507 by Minoru Yoshida of Japan, set in October 1980.

Do you do any other weights or anything along with those AugQX? I find just doing pressups every day tend to work triceps, chest muscles and biceps but my forearms are rubbish :(

if you are female you're not meant to do full push ups, you rest on your knees and push up from there :thumbsup: i can do 1,000 in a minute, unfortunately I don't have a camera to prove it, seriously though I used to do 100 sit ups a night to get my self to sleep when I was 11 :oops:

normal press ups, aim for a number - maybe start at 20 or 30, and sit-ups too, but don't bend right over when doing sit-ups as that will strain the back, you just want to be working abs
