If you use the same equation for a pushup against the mass of the earth 5.98 x to the 24th power Kg x 9.8, well that is a heaps of Newtons, so the bench press is easier. Ha!
    This is precisely why I place my arms at an angle while doing pushups. Only a few "insiders" know that, at the right angle, you can cut the weight of the earth in half.
