Oh To Be Wise Meditations

Push ups. How many can you do? If the effort is there than you can do more than what your mind expects. The average is:

  • 15 to 19 years old: 23 to 28 push-ups for men, 18 to 24 push-ups for women

  • 20 to 29 years old: 22 to 28 push-ups for men, 15 to 20 push-ups for women

  • 30 to 39 years old: 17 to 21 push-ups for men, 13 to 19 push-ups for women

  • 40 to 49 years old: 13 to 16 push-ups for men, 11 to 14 push-ups for women

  • 50 to 59 years old: 10 to 12 push-ups for men, seven to 10 push-ups for women

  • 60 years and older: eight to 10 push-ups for men, five to 11 push-ups for women

These are some numbers I got online. Pushups are all mental. You can do as many as you want. Work yourself up to a certain number in increments. Little by little you start to get stronger. Your arms get straighter and your shoulders get broader. The upper abs get tighter( lower abs a totally different animal lol.) Prayer is like push ups my friend. Don't you dare put a number in it. You push up and down in prayer and stop having a number involved. You are getting stronger even if you do not feel it. You are growing in perseverance even if you do not see it. You are building resistance even if you feel prey to evil desires and tribulations. Prayer is giving you the strength to overcome this world through faith in Jesus Christ our LORD. How many can you do? Don't worry about the average, just pray. You will be surprised how the LORD is strengthening and guiding you in the process.
