How many push up should a 40 year old man be able to do?
Every other day I do 3 sets of 50 - military style (hands below shoulders, elbows in and pointing back , flat back). I rest about 2 minutes between sets.
Every now and then i mix it up (hands closer/further apart, or futher/back of the shoulders)
I am 43 and 6 foot 176 pounds.
I don't know if this is average or not for a guy my age ...just putting it out there
For a 13-year-old girl: You should probably be able to do at least 5 (real push-ups, not girl push-ups). If you can work your way up to doing 20-25, you're doing awesome. For a 13-year-old boy: You should probably be able to do at least 8-10 real push-ups. Try to eventually be able to do around 25-30.
women shouldn't do proper push ups as it can but strain on your reproductive muscles and cause you to be infertile (I disagree, woman can do push-ups too but I don't know how many. To be fit, you should be able to do 20 I guess)-By Aubrey I agree with Aubery women can do regurlar push-ups and to be in fit you should be able to do at least 30-40-BY divalove22

3 Months before i turned 14 my personal record was 88 push ups (wide arms,medium speed, done on carpet). With this I set the record in my school (8/8th grade).
