I dont lift weights anymore and I just do push ups. I 3 sets of 50 diamond push ups and 3 sets of 50 regular push ups. I can do this preety easily. Should I do more push ups than this? What about the push ups where you put your legs on the chair?

Uhh...what exactly are you asking???are you wondering if you can gain muscle from all those push ups??? if so the answer is no....if your asking if thats a lot of push ups the answer is kinda...if you did 300 straight then yes thats a lot but 6 sets of 50's not that much....

well the routine youre doing is fit for endurance, not to get a cut look..

to get a cut look, do 3 sets of 20 pushups. dont pump them out. go as slow as you possibly can. you shouldnt be able to do more then 20 if youre doing them slow as hell and in proper form. focus on what muscle youre trying to work out.

you need weights to get cut, doing the pushup routine i suggest will be better then the one youre doing but try to get some free weights

it`s ok.but don`t expect your muscles to grow or get stronger. You only train the conditioning of your arms and chest muscles with that many reps

If you can do it as easily then you increase the number of reps. When a person starts to weight train, lets saying bencing like 200 pounds, after a while of working with that weight it almost becomes nothing because their strenght has increased and adapted to weight. So depending on the person, If they choose to get strenght and mass, they will increase the weight by 10 pounds or untill they feel comfortable.

I say you should increase your reps by 10-15 push ups and then trying doing 50 reps, you'll see a difference. Wont be as easy no more because it will take more strenght and stamina to do so.

i dont see how push ups dont increase your power and make your arms/chest bigger at lower reps.

if your 170lbs ex.your pushing upper body weight
so how does that only effect endurance?

my arms have increased as well as my chest this past month from doing push ups every night

Doing alot of pushups will get you cut lean muscle but you won't get really big. You should try doing 100 reps instead of 50 and taking breaks. When I played highschool in football (im in college now) my first year I couldn't bench alot but there were a few kids who could do 100 pushups and we stronger. I think pushups are more fun..more variety of ways to do them so if you just wanna get cut keep doing them. It also helps quickness cause your arms don't get to big but they are still strong(think bruce lee) and you'll save money by not having to go to the gym.

Nah... More time under tension will provide pretty much the same results as hundreds of reps as far as muscle growth goes... It'll toast your CNS more, but not cause much more growth... The lack of resistance is still there...

The reason hundreds of push-ups won't build much size is because the resistance is too low... Low reistance means slow-twitch fibers are recruited and slow-twitch fibers have VERY LITTLE growth potential...

A push up only has you pressing about 45-55% of your bodyweight (I had a calculation for this, but can't remember it)... If I did that at 170, I'd be pushing 85 pounds... In comparison, I'm now doing 220 for 6-8 reps on the bench... Which do you think is better for muscle growth...?

The reasons for your growth from push-ups every night is 1) that you've prolly not been lifting for long, which means you'll put on muscle doing pretty much anything and 2) cus you're pumped pretty much all day... Your muscles haven't really grown that much, they're just filled wit blood a lot of the time...

As far as the original question, no, 300 push-ups is no equivalent to weightlifting... You need progressively higher resistance for serious growth... Lift weights...
