Hey there. Very cool blog. Just wondering if you do any pulling exercises for your upper body or just pushing, does it affect posture much if you don't do any pulling?

I want to experiment with doing no weights to build muscle, what type of results can you expect?

Joel,

Actually we do quite a bit of pulling as part of the WOD. If you follow the daily workout posted, you will find it covers all the bases of general physical preparation.

I think you would have to do A LOT of pushing and no pulling to negatively affect your posture, but you should be interested in pulling to balance out your strength.
