    Push ups with a little weights

    My cousin is 50 years old with a trim figure. He said that he is doing 50 push ups 4 times. In between the push ups, he lifts small weights of 5 pounds. I guess that is good for the older guys so that pulled muscle can be avoided. This morning I did only 35 push ups for I did not get a good night’s sleep. But maybe I will do 35 again this afternoon.

    Re: Push ups with a little weights

    Well, I know one thing for sure, the more natural the better. In fact, machines are the worst - so calisthenics, dumbbells, and free-weights would be advisable. Anyway, I do dumbbells most of the time. Well, I'd like to avoid machines completely, but I have back problems.

    Push ups are a great way to build strength and muscle.
    Incorporate a few different types and do them just like you would working out chest at the gym. 3-4sets but higher reps.
    You can also do them in supersets with another body part.
    Regular pushups
    Military
    Wide grip pushups
    Decline or feet on the back of a chair
    Diamonds
    You can stagger your hands..
    Pushups are very underrated

    Thanks for the advice. Today I did 40 push ups and I think I could do up to 50 but I did not force it for I may have a pulled muscle again. Maybe tomorrow if I'm feeling this good then I would do 42 and increase every day until I reach 50. When I was younger I could do pushup with 1 hand but not anymore.

    Re: Push ups with a little weights

    When I was taking tae-kwon-do, calisthenics was all there was - cause, well, for one thing, there simply wasn't any weights at the simple dojo - which was, in fact, at first, a garage! Anyway, just from calisthenics alone - I got way tougher looking. Nonetheless, though, my legs and certain other body parts still needed work. Well, that was the case at my first go-around - when I was only a high school freshman.

    Re: Push ups with a little weights

    I was doing push ups before. I am encouraged by your post to do push ups again. When I was in high school, I can do 100 push ups a day. But as of today I can hardly reach even up to ten push ups.

    My guess is that someone who can lift weights - could also do calisthenics; however, I could be wrong. Does anyone feel there is a major difference in push-ups, sit-ups etc. and equivalent dumbbell/free weight exercises? Well, I do know anything is better than machines.
