squats and pull ups question!

Post by Rookus » Tue Feb 13, 2007 6:11 am

hi, i just started to follow this excercise plan, it's cool to do, but a squat ? i dont really get that, just pretend like sitting down ? i would like to know more of how to do that, the movie doesnt give me a clear view of how to do it!

and is it good to change the pull ups into sit ups cause i've started at level 3 (i started yesterday) cause that seemed realistic for me to start with but i dont have any kind of thing to hang on here in my room, cant find a think to pull me up to, so i changed those in like 10 sit ups cause those aren't very hard is that ok ?

could you give me a good replacement for pull ups and maybe also on for squats but i dont bother doing them, i just dont know how to do them, it felt prety good how i did it, standing in such a position is like getting prety heavy after 5 sec.

if you need to know about my body !:)

i am 16 year old

1.95 cm (i'm big for my age :))
88 kilogram, but thats not to fat cause of my size :)!

so if youcan give me some info or tips that would be nice, cause :) i would like to get a huge condition and :) a bit more muscles :)

when i was 12 i could do 40 push ups but now its 30 after 1,5 week of training :) i started at 20 and now its 30 :) so i can reach the 40 too i guess :)

Hey welcome!

pull ups will really offset the push ups to balance you out. If you do not have a pull up bar go find a tree or hang a towel over something. you can also do high reps of pulls on a door jam.

Pull ups are tough, but they are one of the single best exercises you can do because they recruit so many different muscle groups

Here are more explanations of the exercises

and here is a video of a squat

Let me know if you have anymore questions, be sure to do the pull ups even if it is just 1 keep doing them nothing will give you functional strength like they will.

Amazon has a bunch of pullup bars that are cheap and do not need to be installed
