What is the weight pushed when one does a pushup. For example im 140 pounds but cant bench press 135, yet can do several pushups. So the pushup weight isn't my bodyweight. Does anyone know a rough amount of what a pushup is to ones bodyweight?
hope that makes sense.
Well I was placed my hands in a push ups position and the resistance came out as 89 lbs. After eating dinner, I'm currently 150 lbs so I'm assuming somewhere around 60% of your body weight?
After researching, one internet site states that you push about 65% of your body weight. That seems about right.

My bad. After testing it for several times, it comes out as about 95 lbs for me.
95/150 = 63%
