I think 6 pullups seems kind of low though. When I was in the service I could do 30 pullups in a minute no problem and almost double that for pushups.
Me too, what's up with THAT? Granted I was in 40 years ago, but I didn't realize people got so weak since then. I'm 58 and can still do far more than what the military requires now. Except for running, no running for the Dog Man. I can walk for miles though.
