How many push-ups is equal to bench pressing your own weight?
You're comparing apples to oranges, here. completing one push up means you're lifting only a fraction of your boly weight (roughly 2/3). By this definition, you'd only have to do two push ups before you'd done more "work" (as in "Joules") than one repition of benching your own body weight, however, as experience will tell you, the latter is actually much more difficult.
