Hola 13friday,

Guau! Nunca pensé que alguien español tendria una pregunta que puedo dar una respuesta! Jeje.

Hay otra thread sobre eso aquí. Haz cliqué.

push up , press up = la flexión ( It may be noted that in Spanish push ups are sometimes called "lagartijas", meaning "little lizards").

pull-up (or chin up ) = la tracción o dominadas en barra fija

Creo que "la tracción en barra fija" es cuál lo busca.
