Pull-ups can be done even at the age of 6. Children as young as 7 or 8 year can work with resistance that can be overcome 12 to 15 times per set *without a strong effort of will* (see the definition of maximal training resistance in “Science of Sports Training” for details how to tell if a resistance requires a strong effort of will). More on recommended amounts of resistance for children of various ages is in “Children and Sports Training” by J. Drabik.
