Who is doing push ups? How often do you do them? Do you have a goal (to be able to do so many, etc)?

I do push ups but they are part of my circuit workouts which I don't do consistently. I also do them here and there when Kristy posts a challenge. I'd like to start doing them more often, maybe 3 times a week, but I haven't figured out when I want to do them. I'd like to be able to do 50 push ups. Right now I'm at about 30 and I've been kind of stuck there for a while. I think it's because I don't do them regularly though. If I could make it a more regular thing I might make more progress.

I do them with circuit training as well. I typically only do about 30 but thats girly. I can do about 10 regular. I would like to get mine up as well.

I need to do them. I keep starting on them, do them a few days and then stop. Just like the rest of my strength stuff. I'd like to be able to do 40ish standard ones, right now I can do MAYBE 2 in a row. When I do actually work on them, I do standard until I can't do anymore then do whatever modified ones I can manage.

Thanks to Bokkechick for my siggy.

I do them as part of some of my DVD workouts...no set goal though. The other day I did 4 sets of 10, and I felt it the next couple of days. Girly ones, I should add...

I can only do about 15 regular ones (or 40ish girly ones) but I'm working on it, my first goal is 25 regular push-ups and I'll go from there

I can do about 10 real pushups without stopping. That's it.
