These push ups strength standards allow you to grade your one-rep max performance and compare it with other lifters at your bodyweight. We have standards for men and women.

Our push ups standards are new and we will be refining them over the next six months as we collect more data from lifters using Strength Level.

The Strength Level Calculator can show your exact level of strength at any bodyweight.
