Pushups are one of the most complete exercises. Australia's Jarrad Young holds the record for the most push ups in an hour with 2806 repetitions.
If you think you do a lot of push ups in your workout, wait until you see the video in which Australian Jarrad Young set the world record with 2806 repetitions in one hour.
Jarrad Young set a Guinness World Record for push ups, with about 45 push ups per minute. With this feat, which he achieved in 2018 at the Matrix Boxing Gym in Queensland, he surpassed the previous mark of 2682 repetitions.
This is the mistake you make when you do push ups. To begin with, start with a series of more than 10 push ups and short breaks so you don't get exhausted right from the start. As time goes on you can increase the pace. The most important thing is to be constant and not to demand yourself at the beginning.
Push ups are a fundamental and very versatile strength exercise, as you can perform many variations and do them anywhere.
