Hi , I am thinking of joining the army and I understand that 'pressups' form a key part of the training itnery while in . I regularly go to the gym, and lift weights . I also do quite a bit of running so I don't have too much muscle bulk. Despite this I can only get thirty out, thirty five on a good day.What is odd is I can get sixteen good quality wide grip pullups which suggests arm strength /body weight isn't the problem. A bloke at the gym says it coz I have long arms and my shoulders and back are helping me with the pullups. Is their any way to improve my press up output? as only being able to do thirty is well, a bit gay isn't it.
