    Nothing wrong with using them as warm-ups, there fine. But if your goal is building they don't give the needed resistance.

    I do chins and wide grip pull-ups but with attached weight so i fail at the 8-10 rep range.
    Push ups i use only as a warm up exercise...

    pushups are great as a last set.because after a gruelling chest workout i can always push out 12 to 15 reps till total failure. i feel i hit evry last muscle fiber when i do this.
