RE: hundredpushups
I don't believe for one second that you can't get big from bodyweight exercises. It's really all in how hard the effort is.

Doing pushups shouldn't take more than about what, 1 second each? So one set of 60 pushups is one minute. You can't expect much growth from doing literally one minute's worth of exercise. Do 5 sets, for a total of 5 minutes = 300 pushups. Or do 10 sets. If you're really pushing your body hard, you'll grow quite a bit, I'm sure.
If you can do those, try different, harder ones. Clap your hands. That takes a lot of power to get off the ground long enough to clap. Tell me you can't grow by doing 300 or 400 of these a day. Right. Do one-armed pushups. Same with any other bodyweight exercise. Use your body's leverage to make things harder. Try doing a planche pushup or a front lever.

Will you get Arnold big? Doubt it. But who is really aiming that high? It's strange that guys who have never worked out will pay $100 a month for a gym when they could do exercises for free that will give them a great body that girls love a lot more than Arnold's.

Gymnasts have awesome bodies by doing super high reps. That goes against the common gym philosophy that high reps can't get you big. Cyclists who have never been to the gym have huge legs by doing thousands and thousands of 'reps' on their bicycles. I'm absolutely convinced that you can get plenty big doing stuff that requires your muscles to work hard. Jogging, no. Jogging doesn't require your muscles to push hard.

And even if you are a low-rep advocate, you can't argue that someone who can't even do 20 pushups needs to work out with weights. LOL
