    Yes.

    Start with 30 push ups with excellent technique and not going very fast, do them. Then after a little rest do a few sets of 15-20 push ups going very slow, the goal is to build muscular endurance. After a few minutes do 8 pull ups. Then again the same thing do a few sets of 4 pull ups very slowly.
    Do some more push ups VERY slowly if you would like. When you lift weights, make sure you really work the triceps/shoulders well.

    This pushup-pull up routine should be done 5 times a week because as a kid I could do 80-100 push ups daily (and I did for months every day) so showing that overtraining is unlikely to happen, but judge yourself on how well this has impacted you over a period of a month of daily push ups-pull ups.


    KEY PART:

    Every day you do this increase it by 2 for the push ups and 1-2 pull ups (but for pull ups only increase by 2's till you get you 12, then increase by 1's).

    The goal is to slowly get your neuromuscular system and muscles to adapt to this and be able to work harder.

    So you go from 30 push ups to 60 in probably about 3 weeks.

    However when starting off, until you get to the 50's or 60's I reccomend doing this every day.

    Once you get to the 90's or even high 80's, you can still do it every day, just do fewer push ups after.

    Some abdominal training 3-4 times a week will assist in this as well. In addition do some cardio to warm up.

    Another exercise you want to do to develop the triceps well after you're done with everything is dips. 5x15 (5 sets x 15 reps) is good to do. Do this 4 times a week.

    So slowly you will reach 100 push ups and 30 pull ups, but it will be VERY challenging to do the 30 pull ups, it will take a lot longer and you may want to take a few days working at every number of reps above 15.

    Do other things like one arm push ups, clapping push ups, and weighted push ups to work the muscles harder and try different things to develop muscular endurance in the shoulders and triceps.

    Do half of what you can do, at different times of the day whenever you can.

    For example, you say you can do 13 pull ups? DO 6 every chance you get... you can do 30 pushups? Do 15 right after your pull ups and do then throughout the day.

    Keep doing this as you perfect the technique/motion. After a week, add a pull-up and a couple pushups everytime...

    law of diminishing returns will happen very quickly with pullups as it will probably be impossible to add 2 PU's a day until 12 and then one daily after that for more than a few days. This might last a week until you can't add PU's anymore.

    Warmup and then do one set to failure . then go up by one rep each workout thereafter. Doing a 2nd set for the same number of reps will do nothing

    do timed sets - 60 seconds as many as you can, rest for 10 seconds, 45 seconds as many as you can, rest for 10 seconds, 30 seconds as many as you can, rest for 10 seconds, 15 seconds as many as you can.

    not a bad routine there, but you can reach a sticking point quick , cns failure, plus quit for a long time after you get burnt out. Why do you have a goal of doing 100 pushups and 30 pullups for anyway. How about building muscle and strength instead of demonstrating it.

    More of the same from you? One set once a decade to failure. By the time you're 60, you'll be stacked and super strong...

    Pullups. High frequency, WAY NOT to failure is the way to go. Read.

    chins have a high fatigue factor, training a good bit shy of failure, even for people who do weighted pullups, is the best way to continue to improve

    Cool Simple answer for great results

    just start to get in the habit of doing them every now and then. first start to get in the habit of doing the push ups and chin ups once a day. If you feel like doing them more than once, even better. pretty soon you will find that you will be doing several a day. They all add up.
    When you count them, we tend to put a mental block of how many we can do. Some of us have experienced that when say as an example, doing bench press. We do the bench press and the guy we workout with only puts his hands on the part when we need that little help to get the weight up. But when we have a different spotter, that always likes to keep his fingers under the bar, or on the bar, ready to spot at a moments notice. We find that after a while of having the second spotter, we can't do the weight unless he keeps his hands on the bar.

    The trick is to not so much worry about counting them but just do as many as you can. When you can't do a full push up, then do a half, if you can't do a half then do a quarter, or just the shoulder shrug of a push up. The trick is to do the push ups always to muscle failure. The more you stress the muscle the more it will need to adapt. Every once in a while you can count to see were you are, but try not to do that too much, because you will want to know were you are at all the time, and place that mental block in your head.

    I had also found this one exercise helped me tremendously with the number of push up and chin up. I honestly had not figured out why, but it did. It's an old baseball workout, to help you with your grip on the bat. You take a broom handle and cut off say a 2 foot length. In the middle of that length, drill a hole though the center, and tie a rope through it. On the other end of the rope you can get a detergent, or bleach bottle and tie it on. The rope needs to be the length of when you hold your hands out perpendicular to the floor that the bottle is not touching the ground. You can control how heavy the bottle is, as a weight, with filling it up with water. Later you can fill it with water and sand. Find what weight that is good for you, by simply adding or removing the contents in it. The exercise is to role the weight all the way up the stick until you cant role it any further, then control the weight back down , rolling it slowly. Then role the weight up in the opposite directions. You will find allot of great side affects form doing this exercise and having a extremely strong grip. When I was doing this and would try to do push ups, chin ups, and even climbing the gym rope to the ceiling and down ( with out the use of my legs), I was able to do well beyond 100 push ups and chin ups. I was basically able to do all three until I just got so bored doing it over and over, I would just stop. I am sure that is the goal you would love to hit as well. It was funny. When I did that, it was as if I never tired, I felt like I could do it ( push ups, chin ups, and climb the rope) all day and it would not make a difference. I just would not tire. I guess it just shows how good a strong grip can be, but you will also find it will strengthen your hole body as a stabilizer while doing this exercise.

    Good Luck

Then again the same thing do a few sets of 4 pull ups very slowly.
    Do some more push ups VERY slowly if you would like. When you lift weights, make sure you really work the triceps/shoulders well.

    This pushup-pull up routine should be done 5 times a week because as a kid I could do 80-100 push ups daily (and I did for months every day) so showing that overtraining is unlikely to happen, but judge yourself on how well this has impacted you over a period of a month of daily push ups-pull ups.


    KEY PART:

    Every day you do this increase it by 2 for the push ups and 1-2 pull ups (but for pull ups only increase by 2's till you get you 12, then increase by 1's).

    The goal is to slowly get your neuromuscular system and muscles to adapt to this and be able to work harder.

    So you go from 30 push ups to 60 in probably about 3 weeks.

    However when starting off, until you get to the 50's or 60's I reccomend doing this every day.

    Once you get to the 90's or even high 80's, you can still do it every day, just do fewer push ups after.

    Some abdominal training 3-4 times a week will assist in this as well. In addition do some cardio to warm up.

    Another exercise you want to do to develop the triceps well after you're done with everything is dips. 5x15 (5 sets x 15 reps) is good to do. Do this 4 times a week.

    So slowly you will reach 100 push ups and 30 pull ups, but it will be VERY challenging to do the 30 pull ups, it will take a lot longer and you may want to take a few days working at every number of reps above 15.

    Do other things like one arm push ups, clapping push ups, and weighted push ups to work the muscles harder and try different things to develop muscular endurance in the shoulders and triceps.

    That routine IS THE ANSWER , DO IT ^^ but try to do the push ups in diferrent positions.

    Push ups are actually better then bench press(I know it's hard to believe). A recent study has shown that push-ups activates your pecs,triceps and even your shoulders more then a bench press. That's why a guy that can do a lot of push ups can bench more thn a guy who just benchs and can't to push-ups. I have been doing push ups for years now, without doing any bench and the first time I did a bench press(a week ago) I ws benching 265 with ease. I only weigh 165 and benched 265x10(it's amazing I know). This fact and the study prove that, the old saying bench is better than push ups is false and an old wives tale, good luck and take what I said into account if you really want to get big and ripped.

    Mind sharing the source of this "recent study?" You sound like an infomercial: 9 out 10 doctors agree that push-ups are better than the bench press for everyone!

    I got my pullups from 4 to 20 in a couple
    Months doing this. I never really tried a max set of pushups but I can do a ****load of them. Anyways...
    I would do ladders (as somebody mentioned before) with pushups in between. For every pullup i would do 2 pushups. Here is a sample:
    1 pullup
    2 pushups
    2 pullups
    4 pushups
    3 pullups
    6 pushups...

    I would do this 5 to 6 days a week.

    I started out only being able to go to 4,
    But when that became easy I would just add a pullup to the pyramid.
    Within 2 months I was doing 1,2,3,4...10,9,8,7...1 (pullups)
    3,4,6,8...20,18,16,14...2 (pushups)
    Which equals 100 pulls and 200 pushups.

    I can now do well over 30 dead hang pullups, I haven't done this routine in a long time but I believe it really helped me when I started
