    And are you just guessing or have u done it recently?

    I just challenged myself...I'm pretty strong with both so I figured 200 push/100 pull would be doable...not the case.

    I start strong with both and fade fast. I can do a solid 15 pull ups my first set but I have no stamina. The next set is about 11-12, then 8 the next, then I'm just hammering out sets of 5.

    Same thing with pushups....30 easily to start, then 25, then 20, and before u know it sets of 10.

    Anyway, if my life depended on it I would have hit the number but I was toast at about 165/65. I'm about 204 lbs with a target weight of 192...I wonder how much more I could do at that weight.


    How many u think u could do?

    Also there is very little time between sets...probably a minute or two

    I pull up on barstools, and push up on whoever is paying my tab.

    I do 4 sets of 40 pushups every day.
    Last week I timed how many I could do in 60 secs and I was at about 70 and tired as fuck. Could probably do 100 if my life was on the line.
    I don't do pull ups anymore after having surgery on both shoulders.

    Probably ten and zero.

    But those 10 push-ups are impressive because I’m pushing the 285.

    Not much of any weight training these days. Though i was never really into it beyond dumbbells and deadlifts. Ive boxed since i was a kid, so it's always been body exercises for me for the most part

    I do a couple exercises with kettle bells at home, and then i box about 2x a week.
    But everything else is just calisthenics

    Like many here I do the "grease the groove" approach to push ups and pullups. I do small sets throughout the day. I often close my office and knock out a quick 15-20 rep of push ups every day..

    At one time, unbroken i can do about 50 push ups and about 15 pull ups.

    Was doing hundreds with rest during training. Scaled it back to about 100 Monday-Friday in 25ish sets with one minute rests. I did a Tyson inspired circuit during training that I could theoretically build back up to but jaysis, serious training takes up so much time.

    Right now straight up off the couch I think I would max out at 25 before struggling on push ups and 8-10 on pull ups maybe less, haven’t done those in a really long time.

    In TKD we used to do timed push ups for one minute a lot to challenge each other.

    In my prime I could do just over 100 in under a minute, and they were good quality push ups. Shitty ones didn’t get counted.

    How did any of you pass the sherdog physical? You have to be able to do 1000 in a sitting, 3 sets, no rest. Which is what I can do.
