After a good week of that you should build up enough to get to at least one. Once you're there, the sky's the limit! Oh and you can build a pull up bar in your backyard on the cheap. Some 5x5 posts, a sturdy metal tube, cement, drill and shovel! Thats what I did bc as a skinny twerb in my younger years I was embarrassed in not being able to do one.
wow thank you!That's very good advice,and something I can easily do and at home!!Without having the stares and ridicule too thanx!
