Winofiend is correct. Doing pushups till failure is the key. Not the, I'm too tired to do another, but I'm about to poo myself on this one.
I'm going to assume you are doing pushups and no free weights. You first have to focus on proper technique - I'd suggest you Google it as most have
no idea what the proper technique really is. Second, you have to do one
set of pushups, fast as you can, until muscle failure 3 times a day,
not at the same time-morning, noon and night. Do this Monday thru Friday. Leave 2 consecutive days for rest.
The above is only for pushups, it'll get your per minute count up in no time. You won't need protein drinks or 2 days rest in between workouts...you
are doing pushups.
If you are doing it with a workout - I'd suggest 2 sets till muscle fatigue, 2 sets of dips, 2 sets of very wide grip pushups, a set of diamond
pushups, include core stuff. I'd also suggest you do a dead lift style exercise or a roman chair for your lower back. I've seen many poor souls hurt
their back due to pushups being done incorrectly. Do this 2-3 times a week. Allowing rest between workout days. Increase the sets every other week.
Include 45+ minutes of cardio with your heart within the cardio range for the 45+ minutes - 5x a week (Monday thru Friday). Note, if your cardio is
running/jogging, I'd suggest doing running Mon-Wed-Fri with another low impact cardio Tues-Thurs.
