    It would be more of an endurance workout. Don't expect to get huge from it. lol. Okay, if thats all you got, and don't have any bench or anything. I used to do that, cept I did like 300 pushups.

    damn dude, ive been doing that for a while, it doesnt really get you anywhere if you already have muscle in your arms.

    although if you dont have much, itll only get you so far.

    do it for 5-6 monthes you could maybe gain 10-12 lbs

    Not by doing the same thing everyday. If indeed you gained 10-12 lbs, hookem, it was most likely through growth. You are 15, after all.

    Hookem, press ups will work the chest more than the arms

    in one set? if so, i would rather find some exersice thats heavier. if you use less than 60% of your 1rm you might have troubble gaining muscle, it will be more of a cardio exersice
