You can do 140 push-ups but only 15 pull-ups?

yep, different muscles are used, pulling strength is different to pushing.

75+ is good; I didn't mean to be rude; I can only do 40 myself...but 100 is what I consider enough for one to be called fit.

100 push-ups and 25 pull-ups

However, after doing serious weights, I can only do about 50 straight. 150 is without prior intensive workout, which sometimes I'll do it as a warm up to weights.

Let us use Amsterdam - the gold standard - as an example! He does 40 pull-ups and 150 push-ups. That is a ratio of 4/15.

So if you do 25 pull-ups, which you should be able to do if you're fit, you should be able to do around 94 push-ups.

In my book that says you have to do 25 pull-ups and 100 push-ups to be considered fit, rounded up niceley.
