    I've just been leaving it as zero as it doesn't use any weights.

    You are actually pushing your weight. Pushups are a bodyweight exercise, so what ever your weight maybe should be the weight entered.

    Just nitpicking, but somewhat incorrect...

    Since you're feet are on the ground, your weight is distributed over 4 points which touch the ground, 2 feet, 2 arms. I weight 220lbs and can do about 75 pushups. There is NO way that I'd be able to bench press 220lbs 75 times. I'd say that a normal pushup is approx. 35% of your weight... so if I were 200lbs, that would roughly be 70lbs....

    I can see being about to bench 70lbs about 75 times...
