    some questions about the following news

    Hi, I'd like to ask a question about the following news:

    Oscar winner Jack Palance dead at 87 - CNN.com

    Question:What does the sentence "That's nothing, really. As far as two-handed push-ups, you can do that all night, and it doesn't make a difference whether she's there or not." mean? Or more specifically, what does the "that" in "That's nothing, really." and "you can do that all night" mean? Who is "she" in "whether she's there or not"?

    I think he is making a joke. He is comparing two handed push-ups to sex. I hope that's enough explanation, if not I'm sure someone else will elaborate.

    The 'that' refers to, in the first instance, one handed push-ups and in the second to two handed push-ups.
