What are the benefits of push-ups and pull-ups?

Push-ups work on the pectoral muscles, and triceps and strengthen the shoulders, core, lower back, and abdominal muscles, and boost metabolism to speed up weight loss. Pull-ups, on the other hand, help strengthen back muscles, arms, and shoulders while improving grip and overall body strength. It involves suspending the body from a bar and then pulling oneself up.
