How many push-ups a day is good?
There is no limit to how many push-ups one can do in a day. Many people do more than 300 push-ups a day. But for an average person, even 50 to 100 push-ups should be enough to maintain a good upper body, provided it is done properly. You can start with 20 push-ups, but do not stick to this number.
Are triceps hard to build?
Biceps Overpowering the Triceps
Triceps are three muscles compared to two muscles, so they need to be hit at least one-third harder than their counterpart. And if you’re training bi’s and tri’s together, you probably train biceps first. Try to mix up which muscle group you train first to ensure balance.

You get better at doing Push Ups
A 100 Push Ups is not a lot, especially when you divide it into sets. However, if you can‘t do it yet, well then, you’d get stronger. But if you already can do a 100 Push Ups, even in a couple of sets, then it’s not much of a benefit.
Do triceps respond better to high reps?
Triceps respond better to lower reps. Delts generally respond better to high reps, though the front portion can respond well to lower reps.
Are push-ups good for triceps?
Push–ups target the chest, shoulders, and triceps and work your core, back, and legs. They pack a serious punch for such a seemingly simple exercise, but you aren’t doing yourself any favors if your form isn’t dialed. Great push-up form starts with a rigid plank.
How do I activate my triceps?
Stand in front of a cable machine, holding onto the bar with the elbows bent to about 90 degrees. Keeping the elbows stationary, push the bar down, contracting the triceps as you extend the arms. Bring the bar back up to about chest level without moving the elbows and repeat for 1–3 sets of 8–16 reps.
