A study from 2019 that looked at active men found a high association between lower risk of cardiovascular disease and the ability to do 40 or more pushups. Individuals who could do 10 or fewer pushups had a much higher risk/rate of cardiovascular disease.

We don't know what our limits are, so to start something with the idea of being limited actually ends up limiting us.

Nice, I started doing daily pushups using the video below as a guide for positioning / technique about 2 months ago. 

Once you start focusing on tension in the rest of the bodies muscles and proper position as recommended in the video the move becomes way harder lol.

The perfect pushup

I came across a video where a guy was setting a record for doing 1000 push-ups in a short time. He was wriggling his whole body like a worm, and his range of motion was only a few inches, lol. But for some reason, he considered it a record.

I gave up doing push-ups a few years ago, and now I think I'll just stay lying down after 15.
