At the moment my BMI is around the ideal range, somewhat skinny, but not that much, though I don’t exercise at all and spend most of the time sitting. At the moment I can do anywhere from 2 to 7 or 8 push ups in one set, depending on how much energy I have that day, but let’s say that an average is 5. So 5, but only if I push myself to the very max. After that I have to wait a few minutes and then I can do another one or two and same thing again.
Obviously I don’t plan on going from five to a hundred in 2 days, but in general how much time would it take me if I exercise every or at least every 2, 3 days and how do I even exercise, is the point in getting stamina and doing sets during the entire day as long as you can or is the point in getting more muscle tissue and doing the whole calory&protein instake thing?
When I was younger, like middle school age younger, I was able to do over 20 push ups at a time, once even a hundred when I was doing boulder climbing, although I think we had a short pause, so it wasn’t really a 100 in one go, but still… However I was really skinny back then, I didn’t eat as much as I should have and I didn’t even know what BMI meant, let alone calories and proteins, yet I still managed to get great results, much better than my 3 times stronger friend who played tennis and a few other sports, but couldn’t do 5 real pushups.
So is it about the stamina then?
