    Pear shaped?

    Hello i am 5'9" , 150 ibs teen trying to do some pull ups. I can do 9 chinups in a row and 5 pullups. I have a long neck and narrow shoulders i think. Can pullups make me look good? I dont have access to gym currently so cant do weights.

    Well, even though pull ups are a great exercises, they will not be nearly enough to get you in shape, you need to do complete workouts, possibly get a gym membership and do a program from the stickies

    I am 19 yrs old and In a few months i would be able to get a gym membership.
    I cant find the program you are referring to, can you post the link?
    Meanwhile should i foccus on wide arm pullups to increase the reps to 15? I could do 30 pushups 2 years ago but stopped doing those cuz shoulders got too narrow in relation to chest. Need to balance the thick neck and face though, body looks too small before them.
