Default Push boxes and maximum bends in NMC

Another electricity question from me... bear with me. I've been reading the NEC and it says that there cannot be more than 4 (90 degree) bends in the conduit between box to box. I read that as meaning outlet box to outlet box. However, would putting push boxes in the conduit mean I could do more bends and still keep it in code?

I have this really pesky situation that would require no less than 6 bends from outlet to outlet.

BTW, invariably some people have the attitude that if you need to ask a question about electricity and or codes than you shouldn't be doing it. Without derailing a thread before it starts, I disagree.

Yes, you can add condulet bodies or pull boxes between your outlets. A pulling 'c' or 'LB' type fitting is appropriate way to get around the bending radius codes.
