Re: Building up push ups?

Hey guys thats awesome thanks for the advice the reason i say i want to do ninety is cause i want to score excellent on the the test and I am good with sit ups and the run just not PU. Also usally on the workouts and stuff iam fine with the small numbers in the rounds cause i recover quickly but its when i try to max out the number of PU i was not getting the results i wanted.

My jaw almost dropped when you said 90 push ups!!

Yeah NROTC is officer training, Naval Reserve Officer Training Corp (replace Navy with Army or Air Force for the other services), what you do while you're in college and not at a service academy.

It's was pretty common among my peers in the officer community that we don't concern ourselves with the minimums in each event, we considered the maxes our minimums. If you weren't going to max your APFT, why bother to take it... The goal was (should always be) 100 in each event. And when you are at a school that lets you use the extended scale, go until you can't go anymore. I'm proud of my 351 in OBC.

And we make fun of Navy here, I'll refrain from making fun of yours!

I do three sets of 40 in my CFWU. I just added them in. I can easily knock out 90 in a row if needed when fresh.
