    stop counting, your body and mind is trained to stop at an arbitrary number.

        Use the Pavel Tsatsouline method

        Do 20 in the morning
        20 in the afternoon
        20 before bed

        Do this for a couple days and then try to do 30 and you'll see

    Once you can do 25 then stop, after that it's cardio. You really don't need it and it could actually be bad for you. Really you could probably stop at 15-20 but a few extra aerobic reps are unlikely to hurt and could add to the vascularity.

      >Stopping before failure
      Just don't do pushups at all if you're gonna do that

      this, after you can do like 30 or 20 i would reccomend switching to harder varriations, like adding a 2 seconds hold at top and bottom, or doing other types of pushups, like typewritters and pike. This is what people get wrong about calisthenics, its literally like weightlifting, if you want to increase your bench pr, you wouldn't just bench 20lbs for 20 reps or something, no. You would move up to harder weights

        OP wants to increase the amount of regular pushups he can do for a fitness test as he mentioned here

        That's what I'm looking for anyway. I'm applying to be a police officer (because I'm a masochist) and I want to ace the fitness test.

    Sounds cool but he appeared to be focused on general strength and fitness for army training, not about getting big. Everyone knows that army guys never get that big despite all the drills and stuff they do. It's mainly a fitness and functional strength thing.

        then Pavel's "Grease The Groove" or GTG is the thing for you. You first measure your max which is 25 in your case and then do sets of half that amount of reps (12 or 13) throughout the day and accumulate volume.
        few days later test your max again and take half the amount of reps you got as number of reps per set and carry on

          Does this works for pullups too? I'm a different anon, trying to join the foreign legion and doing pullups is one of the requirements

            absolutely, I think pavel suggested it with pullups first. If you have a pullup bar at home (or anything to hang from) do some easy pullups every time you walk past the bar throughout the day.
            the key is to avoid failure in favor or volume.

    They're a meme but those 100 push up programs are good in that they're just a nice way to do a lot of volume. The progression model doesn't work, for long, though.

    Why the fuck is it so hard to put reps on with easy exercises?

      because it involves a lot of stabilizing muscles (core, lats, hips, biceps), if you're not stable then the wobbliness will cost you plenty of reps

    whats the correct number of sets and reps and training days per week to get the most hypertrophy out of pushups?
    atm I can do around 20-25 at 220lbs bodyweight

      mike tyson used to do 500 pushups and bench dips every day of the week with a single rest day so my guess is you should try doing as many as you can per day and rest when necessary.
      If that did not induce hypotrophy then at least you would've gotten a decent cardio/conditioning

        You cannot do a routine like that with a good diet and good sleep and NOT gain muscle
        It's just finding the will to do it

    Taken from the gym on my base, never bothered to try it because I don't have the time in the day to drop to the ground every sixty minutes. It probably works, cunts here are pretty big.
