I remember, as an overweight kid, when it was time to do pull ups for the President's Fitness Challenge in gym class. Oh no! The embarrassment of not being able to perform one repetition! I even had a hard time with the bent arm hang, which was supposed to be easier than the actual pull ups. How I wished I were like the “skinny” kids who could proudly perform several pull ups without struggling.
