Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I've been doing pushups every other day for the past 8 weeks now, I do about 140 pushups in various sets. I'm pretty happy with the results and if you looked at me you would seriously think I lift some kind of weights, I honestly haven't.

I laugh at those people that have said that you need to life weights in order to see muscles in your arms/chest.

Push ups will only give you muscle up to a point and if you're happy with that, then more power to you. Eventually you're body will get used to it and you will stop seeing growth, you'll just be maintaining.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I do set of 100 pushups every other day but that's not including every other body part I work. I do usually incline pushups but today I did backpack pushups putting some weights in my backpack and it seemed like it was pretty solid, Working the back and the front muscles.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

If you want to put on muscle pretty quickly, I highly advise getting some kettle bells. Those things will kick the shit out of you.

You're lifting your own body weight.

Not going to mock but that did make me smile. Most people don't think about it but yeah, you're lifting your bodyweight or rather a % of it.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I guess you can say that but he did say "Weights" which he was referring to actual utilities. Pushups are so basic I don't think you can even be considered a weight lifter or say you work out if you just do that ALONE and nothing else.
