Let me show you the way to do that. You can increase your push up count considerably with this quick and easy routine. First thing you want to do is you want to do some jumping jacks to warm up your body, ok. Just a few. If you can do 25, 30 great. Jumping jacks are simple just like this, ok. Now once your body is warmed up this is the routine you'll really have to do to increase your push up count. The first thing you're gonna wanna do is do diamond push ups to exhaustion and when I mean to exhaustion I mean till you literally cannot push yourself off anymore, ok. And a diamond push up is when your hands are on the ground and it looks like this it's making a diamond. Alright, starting position your arm is straight gonna come down as far as possible gonna push yourself back up. Now again work to exhaustion. Then I want you to wait 30 seconds. Do a normal push up where your hands are normal length. Shoulder width apart, ok. Again you're going to exhaustion. And I'm gonna tell you the reason you're gonna go in this order in just a few minutes. Now we're gonna do wide grip push ups. So your hands are gonna be even farther apart then the normal grip of course. Nice and wide. So in between each of the diamond, the normal and the wide grip you're gonna be taking a 30 second break, gonna be working each to exhaustion. All of those three exercises is one set. You're gonna wanna do three of those every other day and if you're used to where you can do those three exercises without any problems do four sets then five sets then six sets however long you have to go until basic training. Now here's a tip when you're doing diamond push ups you're working your fast twitch muscle fibers in your triceps. When you're doing wide grip you're working your slow twitch muscle fibers in your chest. You're building up your chest your arms and your triceps all on one where you do each of the three variations of push ups. So if you could do twenty push ups before you even start this exercise you should easily be able to do 80 without stopping after you've done a few weeks of this exercise.

Diamond push-ups were hard for me when I was in gym. After a few days I pulled off my first diamond.. Now after 1 year I can do more diamonds than regular.

Just seeing this but basic training increases your push ups alone for the test but doing practice will make it easier

Always keep your elbows as close to your body as possible,otherwise you’re setting up for shoulder pain. Wide grip=no no

Wow, this really worked! I had to do push ups as part of a physical education course at my university. I had 10 weeks to prepare for the test. I started out barely able to do ten consecutive push ups, but on the final test I completed 40 before the one minute time limit! Sgt. Volkin, thank you so much for the video and for your commitment to US freedom.

Man Is that Setting alarm Technique working??? I m currently at 13 I want to go upto 50 in a go 2 months Time
MrTripper77 (17 days ago)
It is now 6/9/19. I’ve been trying to do over 100 push ups a day by setting an alarm every hour. It’s extremely annoying but it has helped somewhat. I can do 18 push-ups now. Better than before but still not my goal in any way. This has been a lot more challenging than I thought it would be.
MrTripper77 (1 month ago)
It’s been 15 days and I can only do 15 push ups. I have to figure out a better way to improve push ups so I am deviating from this work out to another. I’m always exhausted and my arms are like jello. If they improve any more I’ll tell you guys about it.
MrTripper77 (2 months ago)
For the 4 days that I’ve been doing this I honestly don’t see a difference yet in how much I can do. It is pretty exhausting and my arms are always tired. BMT ship date has changed to August so I’ll try to update continually through the next 3 months.
CheckThisOut (2 months ago)
my problem is that I can get to around 30 in a row, but once i go to exhaustion the first time, my arms give out really fast in the next set. How can I go about fixing that?

You should of title the video '20 to 80 pushups in four weeks'. Those of us already in great shape, expecting to quadruple our pushups in a few weeks is near to impossible. I already do 100 straight. But it is an informative video for beginners. Thumbs up. I just hate being mislead by video titles all the time.

Do the workout in this video except keep your knees on the ground. It will be much easier than regular pushups and if you stick with it you should be able to build up.

The wide grip pushups actually cause a lot of wear-and-tear on your shoulders. The further your elbows are pointed away from your body, the less gains you'll make, and the increased likelyhood you will injure yourself.

James Murray (10 months ago)
What if my push up count is 0? Then to increase it by 400 percent should I just do no push ups? Sounds pretty easy.
Mistah Maisonet (10 months ago)

AF Ghosting (10 months ago)
Diamond to shoulder to wide is backwards. Smallest muscles (triceps, in this case) completely exhaust before the big ones - front delts and then pecs in this situation. Go after the big muscles first, just like you would in a weight room (ie. Chest, shoulders, and last, tris.)
rionmoonandroid (10 months ago)
Being former Army and now being a personal trainer I can tell you for certain that is not the way you increase your push-up count. The philosophy of the Army in the military in general is do more push-ups if you want to do push-ups. That is not the way to go about increasing your abilities. Work on your triceps and your core strength and do shoulder and back exercises to isolate the muscles you need to do more push-ups. It's more complex than that but that's the simple quick version
