Tested myself this morning. Did 30 in the regular position. . . I'm a woman in my 30s.

Spark, I would very much appreciate a chart showing the fitness of women doing regular pushups rather than (or in comparison to) modified pushups. In my opinion, it isn't really the Spark way (and is even a bit sexist) to assume that women should measure themselves by that easier standard.

Does it count as a pushup if you can't go as far down as 3 inches from the floor? The angle of my elbows is more like 160 or 140 (instead of 90)! I can't go down very far at all, but I can repeat (did 16) in one minute. OK, if this doesn't count, then I'm less than 1. Next month I'll do better.....? BTW, I'm a month shy of 55.
