    @JBanx256 The pull-up challenge can be found here:
    https://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/do-a-pull-up/
    There are seven levels (really six, level seven is advanced pull-up moves). You progress through the levels to work your way up to your first pull-up (or chin-up)
    Level one is working up to doing 3 sets, 8 reps of dumbbell rows with a 25# dumbbell. Once you can do that you move onto level 2 and so on through the levels.
    I'm doing 180 reps of body weight squats (four sets of 45) and, yes, my legs are loving it. I'm into the fourth week and can feel a lot more strength in my legs already.
    Here's the squat challenge if you're interested:

    Ahhhhhhhhhh OK that makes sense, thanks for clarifying!

    I'm on a program right now (only bodyweight stuff for me currently is dips and a bit of mobility work) but thank you though!

    I kind of dropped off the detail wagon the past couple weeks - just have been very overwhelmed with all the work stuff going on - not a great excuse, but I let that feeling overrule my 'doing.'
