30PoundDumbbellAlmost every day I do push-ups:  3-5 sets of 60 reps.  That is between 180 to 300 push-ups per day.  If a push-up has me lift about half my weight (the other half supported by my feet) then I’m lifting 115 pounds to the tune of between 20,700 and 34,500 pounds daily.

I alternate those with curls:  3-5 sets of 15 reps of 30# dumbbells.  That’s curling 1,350 – 2,250 pounds per arm (or 2,700 – 4,500 pounds total) per day.  It sounds like a lot but spread out over 6 – 8 hours it is invigorating without being exhausting.

So what does this get me?  I am 5′ 6″ and I have a 48″ – 50″ chest measurement.  Fireplugs have nothing on me.  Except red paint.
