Do you do push ups? If you do, do you do girl push ups or guy push ups? And how many can you do (of either style)?

I was trying to look around to see how I measure up but all the charts I find use girl style push ups. I don't know how many I can do of them, but I imagine a lot. Today I did 20 push ups and I'm so excited about it! The last 3 or 4 were a little shaky but the first 15 were good. I remember when I could barely do 10.

I really hate pushups but supposedly they are good for me so I do them anyway. Usually I start with standard and go to my knees at failure with those. Seriously, I can only do 3 to maybe 5 standard, then I drop to my knees and usually knock out 10 to 15 more. Modified (hands on a bench) I can usually do 10 to 12.. those are a little easier than standard but a little harder than on your knees.

I usually do girl push ups (haven't tried guy ones in quite a while). I can do between 15-20 girl push ups. I'll have to give guy push ups a try and see what I can do.

Okay just gave it a shot. LOL! I can do about 3-4 guy push ups before my arms get shaky.

I hate push ups and I am not good at them. I do the girly kind and 15 is usually my limit.

I can do 30 girls and guy pushups about 15.

I have weak wrists so its impossible for me to do a lot with my wrists going out.

I also hate push-ups. But I do them every once in awhile. I can do 3 sets of 15. Not saying they look good after the first set though...

Thanks Jaidynsmum!!
