comment What reps/sets should I use in bodyweight excersices, if I need to train for total count of repetitions?
One more clarification - I must do the sets only 1 time a day? (I'm just puzzled, that sounds too easy ;)

Sure! I carefully document dates, reps/sets and stuff, so I just need to remember to get back to this question after some time.

If I will try to max out every set, 1 minute will not be enough, and I wouldn't be able to do even 10 pushups on the third set. Maybe it would be better if I pick the number that makes the last set really hard (for example, 20), and try to do that number of push-ups in each set? (for example, 4x20)

Well, we have sort of "exams", of the form "do N pushups to pass", so counting matters :)

Yes, doing 3 sets of 16 push-ups (with 1 minute rest) really gives a whole lot different feeling into a muscle. Thanks!

And what rest period should I keep between each set? I'm currently trying to rest 1 minute between sets, will that be enough?

I tried to state the goal in the first sentence - "I need to increase number of push-ups I am able to do in a row". Do I need to clarify this goal further?
