Is pushups is somewhat like bench pressing?
Pushups are nothing like bench pressing. Pushups work your biceps/triceps very little and actually put alot more emphasis on your lower back and laterals (ribs muscles) thats why when your doing alot of pushups, that area feels the most burn and weakest. All your muscles are used and affected but those athe main ones.If you want to get your chest up, do bench presses, but more importantly Curling as it will affect your Pecs.
Try doing push ups with your hands almost together in the centre of your chest, on the floor.
Make a triangle by putting your two thumbs together, and your two index fingers together, then place your hands on the floor and go for it. It helps to focus the work on your pecs.
