Your son is fortunate that he has someone with good knowledge guiding him for sure.
I do agree that 100 reps for push ups is a lot (My PR for one set is about half that) but having some bodyweight training as a novice can really only be of great benefit prior to getting your mitts on the weights. Dips and chins/pulls are also a win.
