A Healthy Person Should Be Able To Do 40 Push Ups. How Many Can AJ Do?
According to a recent article published by USA Today, the number of push-ups a man can do may be a good indicator of his risk for heart disease. Researchers at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, determined that if a man can do 40 push ups, he is 96 percent less likely to develop a cardiovascular problem compared to those who could do no more than 10 push-ups. I was interested to see how many I could do, as I can't even remember the last time I did push ups. You can see in the video below that I didn't quite make it to 40, but I did end up doing more than I thought I could. And I challenged myself to do better. For the next 30 days, I will push up train, and be ready to do 40 in early April. Stay tuned to see if I can do it!
