Default Powerlifting?

I have recently started powerlifting, but now I can no longer do pushups. I used to do 20 pushups fairly easily, but after I've started power lifting I can hardly do 2. Is this normal?

That's really weird. If you are doing bench press, I would imagine you do sets of more than two, and that your weight is going up with bench.

Try doing 5 pushups every day, no matter what. Then when that is easy, add to it. Never do less per day, and stop at 40 when it gets there.

Basically, maybe before you start powerlifting, you are still thin and small. Since you gain muscle size and strength and you are now much heavier. that will result on doing shorter reps when you do push ups.

Your idea is outstanding the issue is one thing that not enough persons are speaking intelligently about. I am very completely satisfied that.
