In terms of affecting body proportions...should
see less concave chest guys in sg due to emphasis on push ups. Pull ups dont give the V shape that easily unless quite hard core.
Erm push up is training pecs and pull up is training lats btw

Do note that kids, men, elites around the world do pull up & push up to build strength. Why discourage kids from doing pull up?
You must be kidding.

Pull up & Push up is a test of strength & muscle endurance in your

Regardless of Pull up or Push up, Go for #UpperBodyFit.

4 main Movement,
Vertical - 1) pull 2) push
Horizontal - 3) pull 4) push
Regardless of Vertical or Horizontal, Go for #MovementFit.

Our motivators had shared full details on 4 main Movement.

36 pull ups, 84 push ups,

Muhammad Ali, the people's champion quotes:

“I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.'”

With the new scoring system, gold is very common.

I enlisted in 2014, I did both pull-up and push-up for IPPT. I personally feel It's easier to pass and get silver with the new push-up scheme. But It's easier to get gold with the Pull-up scheme.

Agreed. I think doing push ups is easier to pass but harder to get Gold. Recently, I did my Ippt in Maju camp and they are really strict with the one fist standard. I had at least 6 or 7 no counts. Fortunately, I managed to pass. haha

Some say pull up is harder. The reasons are obvious.

Some say push up is harder. Few reasons,
a) shoulder joint movement restriction/ pain/ injuries.
Shoulder joint consists of humerus & scapula. There is no bone holding them together. Soft tissue & muscle are the integrity of the joint. shoulder pain are common because people often place too much load or force on this unstable joint. Physical therapists have cited shoulder impingement as one of the five most common injuries.

Description
The rotator cuff is a common source of pain in the shoulder. Pain can be the result of:
•Tendinitis. The rotator cuff tendons can be irritated or damaged.
•Bursitis. The bursa can become inflamed and swell with more fluid causing pain.
•Impingement. When you raise your arm to shoulder height, the space between the acromion and rotator cuff narrows. The acromion can rub against (or "impinge" on) the tendon and the bursa, causing irritation and pain.

b) breathing techniques - for fast reps,

c) use hand muscle only
Coaches/ trainers say "use upper body muscle" but do not know how to enage it.
In short #KnowHow.

d) fail to understand 4 main movements - for optimal Energy Return.

If you can imagine it, you can achieve it.
If you can dream it, you can become it.

Many people have trouble seeing the potential of their dreams; they give up on them because they don’t see how they will ever come true. They just can’t see how taking the time to discover and to plan will have any impact on the dreams coming true.

Have patience!
Although your dream may not have come to pass yet, it can still be realized. You can still make your dreams a reality.

Many fitness guru ask about #LeanMuscle.

#MuscleMass is the main goal of weightlifting and bodybuilding. Muscles not only provide strength and power, but can be a visible manifestation of health and an essential part of a well-toned physique when not obscured by a layer of fat. Thus, the challenge of gaining lean muscle mass, without fat, is of primary importance to many athletes.

#Muscle is a band or bundle of tissue consisting of fibers that have the ability to contract. In addition to water, muscles mostly consist of protein, particularly actin and myosin, the interaction of which converts chemical energy into mechanical energy. Muscle gives the body movement. Muscles are divided into groups, each of which performs a specific function in the body. Skeletal muscles, which are attached to bones, are generally the most visible when not obscured by a layer of fat.

#LeanMuscle is a concept related to lean body mass, which is the content of the body minus fat. Lean body mass is used to calculate basal metabolic rate. Lean muscle is less of a scientific term and more a term of art that refers to muscle that is independent of, and not obscured by, fat. In the context of bodybuilding, lean muscle mass is that which is gained without a corresponding addition of fat or that which remains after fat is shed. It can also be thought of as the amount of muscle on the body independent of fat, bone and other parts.

When bodybuilders speak of gaining #LeanMuscleMass, they seek to increase the amount of muscle on their body without simultaneously gaining fat. This can be challenging because the body tends to either be adding mass or breaking it down, depending on whether you consume more calories than you burn. The body stores excess calories not as muscle, but as fat. Still, according to personal trainer Jeff Grant, it is possible to gain muscle without fat by increasing your intake of carbohydrates at breakfast and after workouts, and lifting heavier weights.

Improve PullUps & PushUps, injury free!

Level your Back with your Chest.

For an #InjuryFreePhysique, your back should be as strong as your chest. This mean that you should be able to Pull as much as you can Push. Your pecs are bound to get a through workout every week, so make sure your back keeps the pace in both strength & endurance.

#Superset Pullups & Pushups for a muscle building fiesta.

Merriam-Webster announced that “surreal” is its top Word of the Year for 2016.

#surreal
1) like a dream; fantastic
2) having an oddly dreamlike quality.
