How Many Push-Ups in Chest & Back
Curious how many total push-ups people typically do in this exercise. I recently completed the program (I've done it several times over the last few years) and got up to 410 total. I'm doing it again now and I'm trying to go lower and slower. My first time focusing on going lower I did around 350. These were my reps when I got 410 -

60/58 (standard)
40/30 (military)
40/45 (wide fly)
40/31 (decline)
20/15 (diamond)
15/16 (dive bomber)

Are others similar? Similar decline on the second set? This is a lot more than the people on the video - it seems to be primarily because they go much slower.

Wow Ceg267 those are awsome numbers. My peak on the standard are probably 40/35. The others I dont quite remeber. Dive bomer maybe 15/12, and the military 25/25. I know that by 20 reps my tris are on fire. Great job.

Big Al - amazing on diamond. Do you go all the way to the floor? Do you save up on the other exercises? I've never been able to do more than 20 diamond push-ups in this workout.

I've always been able to do push-ups really well. I'm not the greatest person in the world at doing pull-ups during this routine. But when i'm doing back and biceps or legs and back i'm cranking out 12+ pullups or chin ups consistently. Yes I do go all the way to floor and I get dirty looks from my cats while I'm on that level. lol
