When I started working out recently, I was both out-of-shape and overweight. I could *maybe* do 5 push-ups (and that's a big maybe). Trying to do those for a chest workout did not seem very productive to me. What I could do, though, was put some weights on the bar and get through 3 sets of bench presses. I could increase the weight little-by-little, and easily see the results of doing that workout. Now, I am able to do lots of push-ups. I'm not sure if I would've have gotten to this point so quickly if I had followed the advice of some individuals (even though their intentions were good).
