I recently set a goal to do 100 push-ups a day on top of my weekly weights routine.. I'm wondering what people think about this, though? I managed to do 100 yesterday just fine, but is every day too much?
chungo44 saidit is a dumb idea just like doing situps every day is a dumb idea. your body needs to rest to grow so by doing pushups everyday you are just going to stop yourself from growing
Sit ups everyday yes. Push ups every other. Muscles grow when you rest.
I got my PT cert for my own edification and that is what I read in many different sources.
chuckystud saidI don't understand such an unbalanced program. What's the rationale? Clear thinking would indicate there are other areas of your body that need worked, as well.
What are the poster's goals? Anybody bother to ask?
I'm not sure that over training is an issue with such low intensity but the whole notion seems contrary to common sense, unless he's wanting a full body workout every day, which goes contrary to resistance training, kind of, and so on.
I noted in the poster's profile that he wants to study to become a personal trainer. I recommend he start reading that manual.
I had to giggle that the poster went on about goals in his profile, but, failed to mention his goal in his posting.
http://www.ptonthenet.com/ is a great place to get volumes of professional level personal training information, and I think it was $10.00 a month when I subscribed to it. This site, bodybuilding.com and ptonthenet.com are some great resources for some better information.
redheadguy said500 crunches a day?!
Where does anyone get the time to do 500 crunches? And what sort of quality is the 456th crunch?
