Our expert says:
No, not true. It's good to work to the point of fatigue sometimes, but not all the time and exhaustion is probably too far. You probably can't go to exhaustion too often without actually injuring yourself. So my advice is to train to a point that is maybe 90% of the way there, perhaps on a scale of 1 to 10, where 10 is exhaustion, you should be aiming to finish at between 8 and 9 on half your training days. The rest should be easier than this, recovery days.
I think also that you should just give this some time to cause change. Your perceived changes so far are too quick to be "real", in the sense that you won't develop muscle in two days,a nd you won't lose it in a week. So just keep giong, and give it months, not days, and you'll see change. Focus on getting stronger, increasing the number of pushups and reps that you can do, or increasing the weight you are using, and you'll see the results come for themselves.
