# How many push-ups is equal to bench pressing your own weight?

## Answer

###### Wiki User

###### 10/09/2007

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.

### How many push ups equal bench pressing 115 pounds?

No matter how many push ups you do it will not equal benching
115 pounds. Why? because push ups are like a mix of cardio
excersises and power. this is called an endurance work-out. To have
relatively the same work-out as bench pressing 115 pounds once, I
would do four push-ups depending on your size.
put both hands on your scale, get in the push up position, and
see how much you weight. i guess you would be doing endurance
training.
