Pushup (AMRAP) Leaderboard

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Nerd Fitness Pushup (AMRAP) Leaderboard.

Below you will find the top pushups performed in a single continuous set (that have been reported).

 

 

The following are the rules for using this Nerd Fitness Leaderboard.

  • You must have at least 50 posts - We don't want random people just showing up and posting just to be on the Leaderboards. If you don't have 50 posts yet, be an active member and come back when you do.
  • You must have been active in the last 6 months - This is meant to be for active members. If you are not active for 6 months, you may be removed. If you once again become active, you are more than welcome to post your new PRs and join back up!
  • Your performance must be current - No posting "This was how many pushups I could do years ago". All efforts must have been completed since joining NF.

 

If you'd like to be put on this Leaderboard, or are submitting an update, please reply in this thread with the following information:

 

Example 1:

     Female

     156# / 71kg

     87 pushups

 

Example 2:

     Male

     185# / 84kg

     52 pushups

 

 

Easy, right? :)

 

 

Bodyweight should be reported in both lbs and kg.  NF has tons of users who are familiar with one or the other.  So both will be listed.  But you must provide both if you want to be added to the leaderboard.  It takes less than 10 seconds.  Here's an easy online way to get the 'other' number.

 

 

What pushups count?  Standard, horizontal, plank-position pushups.  Your body should maintain a roughly straight line from head to heels.  Feet should be no more than a few inches apart.  Hands should be at, or just outside of, shoulder width apart. 

       Bend your elbows to perform a rep.  Stop when your chest is almost at the ground.  If your head is in neutral position and the tip of your nose is brushing the ground, you've arrived.  Push yourself back up fully to the start position.  That counts as 1 rep.  You don't have to lock out your elbows at the top each time, but there shouldn't be any noticeable bend in them at the top.  No counting partial reps!

       When you can't completely lower and fully push yourself all the way back up while maintaining plank form, the set is over.

Do I need to post a video?  No.  We're on the honor system.  You can post a video of your set if you like.  We'd love to see it.  But you don't have to.

Placeholder to put in numbers and complete set: 

 

Awesome! Is this going to be an all-time pushup Leaderboard? weekly? monthly? 6-week? 

 

All-time.

 

Don't "placeholder" a post for your numbers.  I won't re-read old posts looking for updates.

Whenever you update, make it a new post.

I appreciate the detail you went to in the original post to describe 'what push-ups count'.

 

I've hit triple digits using a wider hand placement and not being as strict with full ROM... however using the form as described in the OP:

 

Male

     162# / 73.5kg

     70 pushups

 

70 is my standard set I do approximately once every 4-5 day rotation. It is probably within 10-20 of my true current AMRAP - but I will have to pysch myself up to push until complete muscular failure. Since that hurts. A lot.

:applause: Wow, can I work in your office??? That sounds like a fab work environment!!!

Do it at your work. About a year and a half ago I just started, and within a week a couple people had joined in, a month in and the whole office was getting down, then up at 10:15.

 

Also: Triple Digits!? Maddness!

Is this the number of unbroken consecutive pushups, or the number before your hands or feel leave the floor?

Are you asking if it's ok to rest briefly in the starting position? Then I'd answer yes.

 

I would say that the push-ups should be pretty much unbroken, although to be honest I'm not sure how many more people would get if they were allowed to rest in this position (same for pull-ups if you were allowed to stay in a dead hang, but different from sit-ups where you would just be lying down haha).

 

I got 40 last year just before joining NF, so I did a fresh attempt just now (still out of breath) and got the same number yay. Clearly training bench press and dips and rings and handstands etc. keeps my push-ups in good shape:

 

push-ups: 40

weight - kg: 71

weight - lb: 156

The "rest" position, where you bring your butt up like in a Yoga Downward Dog pose, allows quite a bit more to be performed. On an Army Physical Fitness Test where it is authorized, someone can usually grind out 20-30 more within the 2-minute limit. By allowing a 3-point stance, where one can raise one limb off the ground at a time, I've seen guys stay down for over an hour, completing 500+ repetitions without technically "getting up". (I've also seen a guy execute 80 pull-ups with no kipping by shaking his hands off one at a time

while remaining hanging on the bar.)
