Sit ups and push ups will only tone your muscles, in order to bulk up you will need to add weight, do few reps and as many sets as you can, and continue to add more weight as your strength builds.

Do push ups and sit ups make you big?

Weighted incline situps can give you very nice bulging abdomens. Doing elevated pushups with a weighted vest can give you the results your looking for depending on the goal. Different pushups work different muscles more than others. Otherwise if your a beginner start off without weights and just do regular situps and pushups until you feel comfortable enough to work with more resistance.

Do situps help you lose abdominal fat?

Because situps are exercise, they help you lose fat. However, like all other types of exercise, the fat reduction does not occur in just one place. It occurs all over the body. Situps, however, are very helpful in promoting good abdominal muscles, which are necessary for the appearance of a flat stomach.

How many situps should a 100 pound 10 year old kid do in a day to get a six pack in one month?

For starters , A sixpack is about bodyfat , if you're bodyfatpercentage is too high you'll never have abs no matter how big the muscles are . Start doing some running or any other sport where you burn lots of calories and add some small abs exercises Do not do hundreds of situps since the situps are one of the least effective ab exercises and also don't train your abs everyday for hundreds of reps , your abs are just like any other muscle , so they do not grow if you do hundreds of reps every day

What can an 11-year-old girl do to get muscles?

As an 11 year old you will have sufficient muscle for your body to operate as it should. You are liable to do yourself harm if you try and build up muscle in an unnatural way. Let nature takes it course and all will be to your satisfaction.Its true, an 11 year old girl shouldn't have developed muscles, not until at least 18 years of age. even a 13 year old male shouldn't be doing heavy weights. BUt if you are interested in doing something that will gain you muscle without harming you, try doing pushups, situps, squats (With no weight) and even just running, or riding a bike. All of those will get you core strength and conditioning practice before you even start lifting weights, and by the time you do start it should be alot easier on you.
