IF you are a 18 year old man the amount of push ups you should be able to will vary. If you are physically fit 18 year old man then you should be able to do more push ups than say a fat 18 year old man that is out of shape and never works out.

So for this, we are going to assume that you are just an average 18 year old man that is not physically fit and does not lift weights or workout very often, but that is also not fat and out of shape. You are just average, that’s it.

An average 18 year old man who works out regularly should be able to do about 40 push ups.

30 push ups is about how many push ups the average 18 year old man should be able to without any prior practice or training.

What If I Can Do More Than Pushups Than Average 18 year olds?

if you can do more push ups that the average 18 year olds can do then you are in good shape. But something to keep in mind that doing more, at least in my opinion is always better.

Keep working out and improving your strength and see how many push ups you can improve by in just a couple years. If you can do 50 push ups now then how about try and get to 60 or 70 push ups by the time you turn 20 or 21.

Again for this answer we are assuming that you are just an average girl. You are not fat and out of shape. But you are also not super fit and you do not workout everyday of your life. You are just average.

An average 18 year old woman should be able to do about 25 push ups.

20 push ups is how many most 18 year olds are able to do without much problem. Some 18 year old girls can even do more push ups.

Is it bad if I can’t do the average amount of push ups?

No! Most definitely not, IF you are 18 years old and are not able to do the average amount of push ups that the other 18 year olds can it is no big deal because hey! Let’s face it, you are 18 years old and you have years and years of improvement to go if you want to improve your push ups record.

How to Improve the amount of push ups you can do at age 18

Like I said earlier its a good thing if you are only 18 years old because you have a long time to improve your push ups personal record.

But can you improve the amount of push ups you can do at age 18 before turning 19?

Yes! You can definitely improve the number of push ups you can do at age 18. In fact I would say that it would only take you about a week of practicing your push ups to be able to do about 2-3 more push ups.

Every 3rd day,  try and do as many push ups as you can and by doing this you should be able to improve your max push ups record by about 2-3 push ups each week.

Another way you can improve the amount of push ups that you can do is by adding weight to your push ups. You can have someone add weight to your back when you are in the push up position. By adding weight to your back it will allow you to push more weight up which will force you to get stronger at doing push ups and will allow you to do more push ups when you do not have weight added.
