The Power of Push Ups

Push-ups are not for sissies.Want proof? With a regular stance, you're pressing roughly 60% of your bodyweight at the top position. At the bottom it's about 75%. Don't believe me? Do push-ups on a scale and you'll see. Not so bad considering how much weight you can bench-press.


  1. Thank you for this reminder in the New Year of what I consider one of the best exercises that can be done anywhere. Happy New Year to you and to all your readers.
