    Because pushups put an excessive amount of strain on your shoulders (not 'build muscle' strain, more like 'break your rotator cuff' strain), they restrict your range of motion, and you can only lift as much as you weigh. You can stack plates on your back if you want, but when something as simple as benching solves all three of these problems and probably even more, there's really no reason to do pushups at all.

    Tell that to my gym teacher

    We had to see how many pushups we could do in a minute yesterday and we did about 100 crunches or so today as a class.

    I got 40 or so pushups in a minute, its been so long since I've had gym..

    There are no guidelines for gym teachers or coaches, which is very stupid. They just tell you to do whatever exercises they want.

    if your doing situps etc... which work out your stomach, you should also work on your back, otherwise you will end up with a hunch

    Yea Leve I understand what you mean. The day after doing those push ups, I felt my shoulder really strained. Lmao I wanna tell my gym teacher what you said xD

    A good piece of advice, yes, but I don't think it's too essential for people that are just doing crunches in their spare time.
