3 Weeks

I've had the pull-up bar that long, and have worked my way up to 18 pull-ups and 40 push-ups broken into 4 sets (5, 5, 4, 4 for pull-ups, 10 each push-ups).

My arms and back are beginning to look pretty impressive immediately after exercise and I'm getting definition in my abs even though I haven't started doing sit-ups yet. My chest doesn't seem to be increasing as rapidly, but pull-ups and push-ups don't work it out as well as other exercises would.




After I've rested enough my muscles don't look nearly so impressive, but my arms are noticeably larger.
