    Scott's Thread got me to wondering. So I gave it a try. I can perform 150 reps strict pushups before passing out. And you?

    My definition of a pushup is slow and controlled. (strict reps) Not fast and furious. (sloppy):thumbsup:

    You mean 150 without stopping?!?! That would be awesome.

    I can do about 50 regular pushups and about 25 handstand pushups (back against a wall for balance) without stopping. It would probably take me about 5-6 sets to get to 150, with short rests in between.

    Meeting Pukey during pushups. That's impressive also. If you think that kind of thing is fun, you should give CrossFit a try the next time you get sick of what you're doing! I just about meet him probably every other workout.

    that never had to buy beer.

    He would just say "I can do 25 one armed pushups someone would bet he could not.

    And shortly thereafter an amazed dummy was paying for his beers.

    For the Army PT test, I have done 80 in two minutes. I've never counted how many until complete muscle failure though. Well, I've never counted them at least. Maybe 100?
    I asked a couple chicks I used to work with how many push-ups they could do in two minutes one time. They knocked out TWO apeice.:rofl:
    These weren't girls who were fatty's either, just regular skinny teenage girls. They said "It's not fair! We can't do as many because of our boobs!":animlol:
