I think how fast you do the push ups is important. Slow down and you can't do as much.
I can do 30 in 1 minute. About 15 months ago when I started losing the fat, I was able to do only 8 in 1 minute.

50 good ones and then the next 10-20 begin getting weaker depending on the day I'm doing them.

It depends on the season. In early May, I could do three sets of twenty push-ups flat out. By the end of May I had a lung infection which has not fully healed. Today I did push-ups for the first time in five months, since I became ill. I could do about 3 flat out, and 17 more on my knees. I have a long ways to go until I get back to where I was last spring!
I am 55 years old, so it is never too late to do them!

Probably like 10 max. I don't work out my arm muscles much.

I have become obsessed with "real" pushups. My goal is to be able to do 20 in a row with good form by the end of the year. I currently can squeek out 16, but the last couple are sort of on the pitiful side, not the best form and not real low. I've got a long ways to go but I am determined!
