I am trying to lose some body fat. Currently 173 cm, 82 kg. I am on a "no carbonated beverages" diet and keeping my calories as low as possible. I am not trying to lose weight. Gaining muscle is good for me.
I currently do not have access to a gym and I can't go out (too cold outside), no chin-up bar either. Can't do jump-roping to wake up the neighbors (the suburban jail cells we live in these days, sigh).
So I decided to have a personal goal of 1000 push-ups a day. I'm currently at 150 a day. I'm not sure if this counts as high-volume training and I have no clue about the outcome once I reach 1000.
How much will 1000 push ups a day help in losing body fat? Am I overdoing this? Or is doing pushups just not an effective compound exercise?
