I've realized at the gym a lot of the exercises/reps I do are pushes, not pulls. What to focus on?


By pushes, I mean that I do mostly push-ups, shoulder presses, lunges, etc. I read something recently that said balancing the movements of push-pull will lead to more strength and better overall health. The article didn't suggest any of the pull exercises to do so I'd like to know what they are/which ones are favorites? Thank you!

    Thank you very much, Sid--and I apologize for the delay in responding. Your explanation seems practical and makes sense to me.

    I'll consider a session w/a trainer, but I know my local YMCA is rather pricey for a college student! :)

    Thanks again.
