It is now become common knowledge that it is a necessity to give which ever muscle group a rest after "heavy" lifting. If not you could damage yourself. The difference between push ups and lifting is that there is no added resistance besides that of your own body weight. So lets say i do push ups all week, and i also do upper body lifting one day out of the entire week. Would this over time over exhaust my upper body ? Maybe i just answered my own question, maybe not. But the more i talk about it the more confused i become. Can somebody please help.
