Push Up Weight Formula
The following equations are used to calculate your “push up weight” or in other words the amount of weight you lift with each push-up.
|Modified Push Up (knees on ground)||Full Push Up|
|Up Position||53.56% bodyweight supported||69.16% bodyweight supported|
|Down Position||61.80% bodyweight supported||75.04% bodyweight supported|
What is push up weight?
Push-up weight is the total weight you are lifting while performing the exercise of a push-up. The reason there are two values in the table is that at different portions of the push-up, your body is at a different angle relative to the ground. This angle affects the total amount being lifted.
