1Hey Coach,
I am 12 years old and I'm starting to work out. I am doing 100 push-ups every day. Am I overdoing it?

Hey mocpredator

Push-ups are a great exercise for kids your age who are just starting strength training. Push-ups are excellent for building upper body strength and improving athletic performance. Whether or not you're "overdoing it", depends on what kind of shape you're in, how well your muscles are developed and whether you're doing those 100 push-ups properly. Talk to your P.E. teacher at school and ask him or her to supervise you and make sure you have a good technique, with correct body position and movements (i.e. your back should be straight and your movements should be even and controlled), there's no reason you shouldn't be able to 100 push-ups every day.

Coach's Piece of Useless Trivia

Roy Berger of Canada holds the Guiness World Record for push-ups. He did 3,416 push-ups in one hour at the Central Canada Exhibition on August 30, 1998.

Do you need tips or advice on sports, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.
