Pull-up set completion

Recommended Posts

Hi all, when using the pull up app, how does everyone prefer to judge being complete? Do you count the set complete only when all reps  performed unbroken, or do you take small micro  breaks in between reps if needed to finish that the set and then call it complete? I’ve been doing the former. I will only consider a set complete if I’m able to perform each repetition unbroken with no rest in between reps.

Push-ups and pull-ups are two effective exercises for building upper body strength. You can perform these exercises to burn fat and gain muscles.

While doing push-ups you engage your chest muscles, triceps, shoulders, and upper back.

Similarly, when doing pull-ups, you lift your body by using force from the rear dells, biceps, forearm, mid-back, and core.

In this way, by doing push-ups and pull-ups you effectively engage all the big and small muscles in the upper body.

There are a lot of variations to add to your push-ups and pull-ups but as a beginner, you should just focus on simple moves.

You can either do as many as possible push-ups for 60 sec, rest for 30 sec, and then pull-ups for 60 sec

Or you can do 15-20 reps for each exercise with 30-sec rest between the sets.
