200 Push Ups A Day

Push Ups got me in great shape for my summer holiday so I can safely say – they’re effective, they build muscle, give you a cardio workout and help burn fat!

The whole reason I put together my The Push Ups Program was because I was shocked at how effective they are, why didn’t my complex heavy weightlifting gym routine work as well!?

Most think push ups would either not offer enough resistance or that push ups everyday would just be overtraining . However as we’ve heard anecdotally – there’s just something about the power of push ups for sculpting a strong lean physique.

How Much Weight Is Used In A Push Up?

With a reguar push up you’ll be utilising 64% of your bodyweight. For example someone weighing 165lbs (75KG) would be pushing 105lbs (48KG). That’s the equivalent of using two 52lbs (24KG) dumbbells in each hand. Imagine doing 200 controlled slow reps with this weight but this time your lats, core and legs are holding the weight along with getting a powerful chest, shoulder and tricep workout.

  1. Hi! How can I incorporate dips and pull up with push ups 200 daily? Also what if i have a resistance band, how can I most effectively work with it?

    1. Resistance bands are great for full body workouts and mobility/flexibility training too! You could do dips and pull ups along with push ups in a circuit, could even add in some bodyweight squats too!
