    Hey hi Anthony,
    I started trying for pull up from last month. I struggled to make 1 initially but now I am able to do 10 at a stretch. But the problem is I couldn’t take the same 10 in next set. Can you give me idea?

      Hey,

      If you went from 1 to 10 that is awesome progress. Not being able to do 10 on your 2nd set is completely normal, your body is fatigued. How long are you resting? You should regain about 90% of your strength after ~2 minutes of rest, just try to rest a little longer, but don’t worry – it’s completely normal to do less reps with each set, you’re breaking your muscles down and fatiguing your body.

    I have been doing pushups 9 times and some
    other exercises and take a one day rest in a week.
    Would that be good for my body taking of one day rest ?
    Also, Is there any chance to grow taller by doing these excercise?
    I have been doing these exercises for 2 months.
    My age: 23
    Thanks in advance

      Hey Sujit,

      It’s absolutely necessary that you give your body a break at least once a week.

      Are you only doing push-ups? If you don’t have access to a gym, you should include other body-weight exercises into your routine. Do things like pull ups, chin ups, dips, jumping squats, lunges, etc.

      They will not make you taller, unfortunately :( I am only 5’9″ so if it was going to make you taller I would be doing them every day lol. The funny thing is that my Dad is about 6’4″ and my whole life they would tell me I was going to be tall like my Dad… I’m 25 and still waiting for that growth spurt I was promised.

    Pull up is an effective exercise that helps to develop muscles on our back and arms. Even one pull up can make drastic changes in your body muscles. Can pull ups help to strengthen chest? If yes. How is it possible?

      Hey Sanjay,

      Unfortunately pull-ups will not do much for your chest. Try pushups for your chest instead :)

      Push ups will help your chest, triceps and even shoulders grow.
