Question: How many modified push ups make a regular one? I've been doing this workout for a while. Push ups are the challenging part. I can never get comfortable while doing them. My hands get sore fast. I'm pretty sure I have the right form, hips forward and arms equal with your shoulders, but my hands just hurt to soon. When I do modified push ups they don't hurt. Should I do modified instead, but just do twice as many? How many modified push ups make a regular?

Answer: Hello, Modified push-ups are great for toning, but it probably will not be able to add as much muscle into your frame as a regular push up will. If I have to estimate 2 and a half modified push up is equal to 1 regular push up.
