Way to blow first comment, make a joke nobody will get. OP it's easier for a little girl to pull her own weight than a full adults, don't feel ashamed.
#17 is absolutely right. She only has to lift up a child. You have to lift up a whole adult. Besides that, there's always going to be people who perform better than you - improving yourself isn't about them. That being said, don't sell your daughter short as a "weak little girl". What expectations for herself do you think you're setting up with that kind of talk?
Well she does have years of practice on those monkey bars compared to your few weeks... Don't feel to bad OP.
I would've thought short arms would help for pull ups. It's simply strength:weight ratio. I remember being able to pump out the pull ups when I was a child also, and I can tell you that it's much harder now. And I'm probably more active now than then. Anyway, 9 isn't too bad at all OP.
Idk but I think they could have meant wait until she hits puberty? When I was in elementary school I could easily do 20 pull ups and now I'm 16 and can't even do 1 pull up(I am not fat at all and am athletic). Hips/boobs apparently are supposed to hinder your ability to do pull ups...
It's MUCH easier to do chin/pull ups as a kid. I used to be the same way.
