    None, you know why?

    A girlie pushup =/= An actual push up.

    If your arms are sore, knee pushups will be just as effective as regular pushups. But make sure you are not overworking your arms. You need to give at least 48 hours before you can hit the same muscle again. A better way is to wait for 2-3 days before your do your chest exercises again. Then start with regular pushups..do as many as you can...then take a 1 minute break. Then try to do regular pushups, if you cannot, switch to knee pushups. This will help you work your chest muscles to failure.

    none.

    First, if its a "sissy pushup" its nothing. If your not utilizing and relying on the arm muscles and the arm muscles alone, its not a pushup at all.

    Second, There is no such thing as a "girlie pushup". Its just a plain pushup. Okay?

    Seriously, if your working out THERE ARENT ANY(or shouldnt be) ANY SHORTCUTS.

    It's hard to say, because your not working all the muscle fibers in man pushups than you would in "girlie" pushups.

    Maybe 5? But again, your not working all the muscles, nor are you working them as hard.

    If your having a problem doing normal push ups try using a exercise ball . Kinda lay on but only have your legs on it (in a push-up postion). When doing this your doing a bit more the a normal push-up cause your also balencing yourself as well.

    Zero.

    A pushup, if not done correctly, is not worth doing.
