sounds like a good goal to shoot for. Love pullups for developing upper body strength and size. Lots of variations u can do too if u want more of a challenge or emphasize on different muscles (arms, pecs). Right now, doing weighted, narrow grip and alternate grip pullups as part of my back routine. Alternates are a real killer btw..lol

Tee Jay, good luck with that. Years ago, Men's Fitness recommended reverse pullups -- i.e., starting at the pull-up bar, then lowering yourself while counting to 12 and doing six reps. A trainer saw me doing these a few months ago and said I would get a lot of benefit from the negative aspect of this exercise. The magazine also recommended hanging on the bar for 60 seconds and working your way up to hanging on the bar for 60 seconds with a towel wrapped around the bar. I do six reverse pullups, sets of 8, 8, and 7 regular pullups, then use the towel to hang from the bar. I mix these with body rows and push-ups.

Started a pull-up challenge with a couple other guys, our final goal is 20 perfect pull-ups in a row. We did two sets of three today. I still have a long way to go....

I have decided that all articles on exercises should start with a statement as to which fitness level you should be at to use the exercise being promoted.

Push ups for the chest,arms. What about the backside? the butt? What is the easiest exercises to do at home that have real results?

I have been a personal trainer since 1993 and am currently the general manager of Golds Gym in Twin Falls Idaho.  Happy to offer training tips and answer questions or just chat about getting beastly in the gym anytime.

In a sort of odd way, I find that I kind of like sore muscles. Reassurance that they may be growing.

Does anyone use an Ab Wheel? The wheel with the two handles on it? Just wanted to know if anyone got results with one?

Before I got my tri-bench the renegade row with push up used to kick my ass.  However it's not just chest, it's chest, core, and upper back.

Shane will most likely have some better suggestions, but you should try it.  It's a great exercise.
