Hello i'm skinny 6'0 kid.
pull ups - 14
push ups - 70
sit ups - 400
muscle ups - 3 ( very ugly)
Goal to reach 20 pull ups & 100 push ups.
Questions:
1) Can you offer a training routine which would help me to reach 20/100?

2) What do you think of Major Armstrong Pull-up program: http://manlypat.wordpress.com/2009/02/24/armstrong-pull-up-program/
Thank you, for reading.
P.S. I would be pleased if You could answer at least one of my questions.

Try doing pyramids or density training to reach your goals.

Pyramids -
1 rep, 15 secs rest
2 reps, 15 secs rest
3 reps, 15 secs rest
4 reps, 15 secs rest
5 reps, 15 secs rest
4 reps, 15 secs rest
3 reps, 15 secs rest
2 reps, 15 secs rest
1 rep, 15 secs rest

.. you get the idea, change the start number to give harder workouts, try doing every even number instead (2-4-6-8-10-8-6-4-2) etc etc...

Density, start at about 1/4 - 1/5 of your max reps, 10 sets of that with 10-15secs between each set.

Repeat either 3-5 times, or mix and match...

yes, triceps are the 70% of the arms, so if u train triceps=bigger arms,
a very good exercise are tricep extensions changing height, also diamond pushups and dips work the triceps
