    That's a lot of pushups

    Are you buff?

    If not, I guess it doesn't work

    Expend some of that effort buying weights or a gym membership IMO.

    Push-ups are great, until you want to work different muscles or add a bunch of resistance.

    Why not just join a gym or invest in some equipment?

    Push ups can only take you so far. I guess you can do it with your legs elevated and wearing a backpack with textbooks or something to make it harder, but it is still limited, and you are only working out your chest, triceps, and abs with push ups and sit ups. What about your other muscles?

    Pushups are a very flexible exercise, there are a ton of variations you can do that work nearly all of your upper body muscles. I have my son(9 yr old) do pushups or pullups once a day to work on his overall upper body strength. I can go two weeks and never have him to the same style pushup/pullup back to back.
    I squat barefoot.

    That still doesn't address progression.

    Is he going to start stacking plates on his back until he gets up to the resistance he needs to continue to grow?

    I know I wouldn't want to waste hours and hours grinding out push-ups and sit-ups for some dismal gains.
