Don’t forget you can make your body do or be anything u want! (and this includes a pull up)

from Dustin Maher’s site :

“For many woman doing a perfect pushups on their toes seems like an elusive thing that β€œwoman” just don’t do. Well for pretty much everyone doing my Fit Fun Bootcamps, MamaTone, and Fit Moms For Life DVDs, doing perfect pushups on their toes isn’t a matter of if, it is a matter of how many. The average woman in my programs within 6 months can do at least 30 pushups, and many can do over 50.

“Once someone gets over a certain amount, maybe around 30 ish, pushups aren’t as exciting and don’t pose much of a challenge. What I have found to be all the rage right now is the desire to do a pullup. Based on my experience a pullup is about 20 times harder than a pushup for woman. Pullups are so difficult because a person has to pull their entire body straight up. I was unable to find data on what % of woman can do a pullup, but I bet it is 1 in 10,000 at best. That is why I am so proud that I have at least 25 woman I know for sure can do pullups.

Pullups are one of the greatest upperbody toning exercises, it tones the upper/mid back (bra fat area), arms (especially biceps), shoulders (especially the back shoulders), and works the abs more than most people realize. It also works a lot of forearm muscles which translates into stronger grip strength which is very import if you have ever tried to open an old jar that just won’t budge.
How do you get started to work your way up to pullups?
