    my first time setting these kind of goals, would like to be able to do 100 pushups in a set and 25 pullups in one set as well

    so far i just started doing as many pushups as i can on chest day after i warm up and then going into my regular chest day, same for pullups but on back day.

    been thinking about doing them 3x a week each instead of 1-2 times, but not sure... wondering if anyone here has done this and could give some input

    pullups first on back day, push ups at the end of your chest day

    25 pull-ups in one set? Wide-grip? In good form? You'll be training for a while... :)

    well, if your overweight, as your lbs drop ull be able to do more pullups (thats what happened to me...started at being able to do half a pullup, now I'm at 15 in one go.)

    if your not fat, id say just do em everytime u have some free time

    You're a fucking genius. :ugh2:

    THAT STILL DOESN'T TELL ME WHY HE CHOSE THESE PARTICULAR NUMBERS. How many is he currently doing? Did he choose 100/25 to ensure successful attempts for military pre-requisites? Etc.

    I did 22 WG pullups when I was a skinny bitch (keep in mind i trained them for a year and did them three times a week) now i'm a skinnyfat bitch and can do 7-10 :o


    Chino I think for both it's best to do them in seperate training sessions from your back and chest. I'd try to do each three times a week in the mornings or nights if you have a pullup bar available outside of the gym. I got my widegrip pullups up to 22 from a few and my pushups up into the 70's from around 30.


    Stay consistent and it shouldn't be hard.

    i do pullups in about 1/2 of my workouts.


    the only way i will get past 15 in a row is by losing weight i am afraid. but my range of motion has increased substantially recently. i was getting most of the range, but now i am getting a complete range.

    60s not to hard for pushups, but 100 would be impressive.

    I've been going at random times cause of my new schedule.. I gotta settle down and find regular times I can go when the place isn't packed to the max. When i do that I'll holla.

    Yeah, a friend of mine weighs something like 150lbs and can do a good 10-12 without training. He has a lot of climbing and parkour experience though, so it's not like he didn't do some form of exercise to get there.

    You'll get to 25 eventually, but a lot of variables will come into play.

    25 is a lot of "good strict form" pullups in a row dude

    20 is a more reasonable goal

    75 pushups is a more reasonable goal

    I'd start at those, and move on from there.

    Pushups at the end of your chest/triceps exercises and pullups at the start of your back/biceps exercises as described above are good advice.

    For pushups, make sure you're building your shoulder strength too, it's a huge part of the pushup.

    Core strength plays a big role as well when doing more than 70 or so pushups and 20 or pull ups

    i agree they are lofty goals... but whatever, improvement is all that really matters.
