|i do about 2 sets of 50 pushups a day 6 days a week. So a total of 100 push ups a day 600 a week is this to many push ups to do. If I increase the number will I run the risk of injuring my self or causing arthritis?|
|offensive as I find it, I do tend to agree with eric in general, I don't think that your pushups are too many (so long as you're doing other exercises as well!!) nor is there any reason why they would cause arthritis - so long as you are doing them correctly, not already suffering or prone by hereditary factors to arthritis.
Any exercise if overdone or done incorrectly (or if there is a medical conditon involved) can cause injury/arthritis.
Eric's list of exercises may or may not be right for you depending on what it is you are wanting to achieve & what if any other exercises you do??!!
|i said it's fine so long as he's doing other exercises as well also he did not say (although it was implied) that that was the only exercise he was doing!!
As to doing squats &/or lunges to that extent hell he's worried about arthritis or injury & squats could definitely cause either!! Squats can damage knees, ankles & also cause arthritis in either unless he very carefuul,builds up to that many & even then if he has a predisposition to arthritis or a weakness in those areas squats could cause a problem so he would have to be very aware of what his body is telling him.
