    Push ups everyday...?

    Alright, now first off I feel like a total newb for asking this question.. but...

    Is it ok (beneficial) to do push ups everyday? Usually, obviously, your supposed to give your body time to recover (48 hours)... but on wrestling teams, and in the military, and things of that nature (all kinds of sports/programs) they make you do tons of push ups everyday. Just something that crossed my mind and was wondering about others thoughts/experiences on it.

    Are push ups every day as good as every other day, better, or worse.

    It's a good question. Unless you are doing 500+ push-ups a day, there is no need to rest in between. It is a fairly simple movement working out a variety of powerful muscles, so rest is not needed (mostly since 'rest' in a bodybuilding context means you are doing resistance training - body weight exercises are not resistance training).

    There is a reason Special Forces guys are freakishly strong, and not because they take 48 hours rest between doing push-ups.

    Umm...excuse me, but you are not even close to being experienced by saying rest isn't necessary. You recommend not to take rest between a weight training routine, by the way if you are only doing 20 push-ups then it ain't a workout. Without rest you gain minimal results. So please check your facts before posting no rest is necessary for a good 100+ push-ups. I'm sure anyone here would agree that rest is needed to gain full benefits from any good workout routine.

    If you want to do more of them, then that's all you can do is do them everyday.

    Don't go to failure but do like 50% of your max at a time. It might be everytime you go to the bathroom or something.

    That's how you're able to do more push ups, pull ups, pistol squats.

    if you are sore the next day , you should be taking a rest day, and if you aren't it won't be very beneficial for you since you aren't working to soreness


    I think training every day with lower volume is better for hypertrophy however

    I'm a Army ROTC cadet and as such we have to take the APFT every month. After doing that routine, I went from doing 62 pushups in 2 minutes, to do 76 in 2 minutes. Which is quite a big jump after one month. That routine is pure gold if you ask me.

    Umm since when are navy seals athletes? Please, why do they come back from Iraq emotionally disturbed, they don't know how to train. Exactly ask professional athletes if rest is important, by the way body weight exercises are the same as normal exercises except no weight.

    They come back from Iraq emotionally disturbed because they see women and children blown to pieces in the streets; they see friends with their limbs blown off; they see children armed with RPGs and are forced to gun them down.

    What a stupid comment, man. And if you meant something else (which is hard to know because of the way you typed), then I'm sorry.

    Hi everyone...I am new to the forum and seen this was a hot topic...I am a personal trainer for 7 years and athlete for 17 years...And pushups should not be done everyday due to the fact that you acquire muscle gain and strength when your muscle(body) recover from the workout before-hence the 24 to 48 hour recovery time. No matter if you are doing weight training or body weight training you are still making microscopic tears in the muscles and when that happens you recruit new muscle fiber to repair the muscle and this is how individuals get bigger or increase their strength...I was a sprinter and we need our upper body to be stronger more so than our legs and if we do push-ups everyday our arms and chest could not perform the task our body asked of us which is hold us up in the blocks, and powerfully move our arms to move quicker down the track...

    Hope that helps

    I meant how they are drugged when they go to war, because everyday people can't carry a gun in a warfield, they'd be too scared. Some people who came back even admitted to getting drugged to fight in war.

    noonan stfu and pls go. soldiers get ptsd because they train with too many press ups? wtf notssureifsrs. gtfo

    op i know pro boxers who do like 600 push ups a day who are in better shape than 99% of the general population. if you feel sore you should rest but once you're used ot doing high volumes of bodyweight exercises you wonp't feel the soreness in the same way. you can do press ups everyday.

    The more pushups you do everyday the better you get at pushups. They shock their systems and push through muscle fatigue to build up their endurance for te exercise.

    Yes, absolutely can do pushups every day. Look at the physiques of gymnasts, cirque de solei strength performers, rock climbers, "The bartendaz" or "barstarzz" who all do bodyweight strength exercises every single day and are JACKED, and get back to me if you still disagree with doing pushups every day. Pushups don't load the spine or drain the CNS. It is only CNS intensive work such as max effort lifting that requires longer rest. 48 hour rest period needs are a complete and total myth. If I put a gun to your head and told you that you MUST improve the max amount of pushups you could do by 25 in a month.... would you be doing them once every 2-3 days... or EVERY DAY? I'll tell you what I would do

    Why not O.P, I do Push Up's, it all helps along with other training and b'bing I feel - though to what degree etc i'm unsure exactly.

    I guess it all depends on the indvidual, if they like doing them, but either way i'd think it would be good to Push Up's braw.

    Is it ok (beneficial) to do push ups everyday? Usually, obviously, your supposed to give your body time to recover (48 hours)... but on wrestling teams, and in the military, and things of that nature (all kinds of sports/programs) they make you do tons of push ups everyday. Just something that crossed my mind and was wondering about others thoughts/experiences on it.

    Are push ups every day as good as every other day, better, or worse.
    This is one of those areas where "it depends". There are different ways of doing pushups, some of which require some rest, but usually not days at a time. If you're doing normal/regular pushups, and you're not really pushing/straining your max, then you don't need much rest. When I was in college, I maxed out the 2-min pushup portion of the Navy PFT at 153 pushups. Held the unit record at the time, though I'm sure it's been beaten since. I didn't really do anything special to hit that number. In addition to my regular workout routines, I did two hundred pushups a day -- 100 in the morning, and 100 in the evening. Tried to space them as close to 12 hours apart as I could, and as far from my other workouts as possible. Took Sundays off completely (usually because I was hung over -- hey, it was college).

    Now, if you're building up, using any type of resistance training (weighted vest, angled pushups, negatives, etc), really straining your max (ie- maxing out, then pushing for one more, then pushing for one more, waiting a few secs, then pushing for one more, etc), you may need some additional rest. But that's more of a hybrid resistance/bodyweight training routine than simple pushups.

    Always1st, Thanks for taking the time to share the info and provide the recommendation. I only wish I'd had good coaching when a young sprinter with info like this. Good luck with your personal training career.
