    Erm. They are related to a certain extent. Like for example I can bench press 250lbs and do 65-75 pressups, or something. But when I wasnt this strong and could bench say.. 100lbs, I could not do many at all. So they are related in some ways. Note I don't train endurance what so ever

    Answer to your question - yes it could help, especially if you weight the push up by putting a plate on you or something, but to increase your bench press the best thing to do would probably be to... bench press! (and tricep work )

    just like the last guy said..
    the best way to increase your bench is to bench!

    BUT
    everything you do will help it! The stronger your body is, the stronger you're going to be able to push..

    CHALLENGE yourself with bench.. increase the weight as much as you can.. increase the reps everytime you can.. Grab a spotter and make sure they'll PUSH you too.. Get them to yell at you if you need it.. anything that helps!
    **Never look down on someone, unless you're helping them up**

    Yes , but body weight exercises are not enough to increase strength on other exercises.

    Unless you get someone to stack plates on your back while your doing push ups, its not worth the time unless you are warming up before your workout with pushups.

    If you are stacking plates on your back when doing push ups, you best bet is to just do bench.

    Get on a serious strength program, 140lbs for ten decent reps isn't too bad, on a decent strength program try to increase 5 lbs a week or so and you'll have it up in no time. Pushups are useless unless you're training for endurance but even then I'd prefer other movements.

    This.

    I can do over 100 straight pushups. And I can bench 340.

    I could do the same number of pushups in high school when I was benching 275.
    I squat ATG.
    I touch my chest when I bench.
    Only way to do it.

    They definately will, but you wont notice it until you actually do alot. I was doing 200 pushups a night for 3 weeks, and my bench increased without lifting. It was slight but the answer is yes. Weighted pushups are even better, dips are king

    i think you got it reversed bro.. the type II fibres are the fast-twitch used for explosive and short burst energy, while the type I fibres are the slow-twitch used for endurance and stamina.

    I'd say if you did 10,000 pushups it'd increase 5 pounds. Don't waist your time. Do lots of triceps instead!

    Don't waste your time doing pushups

    Obviously if u want to increase you bench press then lower the reps increase the sets(5x5)

    *Now that you only need to do 5 reps per set, you can increase the weight maybe 5-10lbs
    Give yourself like 2 minutes between sets since your training for strength

    Then after your done with bench in your workout, do weighted dips (or just regular dips if your not strong enough)
    Dips will work your triceps and chest mainly

    Also bench uses your shoulders so do Military Presses
    Standing vs seated is optional, I prefer standing because it is easier to setup in a squat rack imo

    And most of all, eat carbs and protein after your workout

    If you've done all of the above then you will see a 5-10lb increase every week guranteed
    Have a good day, fellow miscer.

    Congratz, you answers a thread that was over a year old.

    But, to answer it again because im bored, the easiest way to increase your bench press, is to bench more frequently, at lower reps and higher weight.

    Charles Bronson did push ups all his life and one day in his mid thirtys he hit the bench in the slam for the first time... 275 for reps with no sweat, so I believe it can.

    if push ups increase bench press then prone cobras increase deadlifts, amiright? notsrs

    Best way to increase bench is eating more and benching more....I can see bench pressing increasing push ups but not the other way around.

    I just wanted to commend you on your great achievement. You bumped a 4 year old thread! Congratz!
    Contrary to popular belief, I dont actually bench 900lbs, as stated in my username.

    Supplement Stack:
    -Orange Triad
    -CreaCore
    -MusclePharm Fish Oil
    -Caffeine Tablets

    Nutritional ketosis requires explicit reduction of CHO intake to generally lower than 50 g/d and, for some, <30 g/d. Protein must also be restricted, often to <1.8 g/d per kg body mass and sometimes to < 1.2 g/d per kg, with remaining calories composed from fat.
