Mr Pull-Up

June 05 2010

Seaman Jason Armstrong from the U.S. Navy broke three pull-up world records this past Monday in honor of Memorial day. He did it to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project which helps seriously wounded soldiers. He managed to raise over $5000 which worked out to be about a dollar fifty a pull-up, good work brother!

You have to watch the video below and see it with your own eyes to really appreciate this incredible feat because this guy is insane! He set a new six hour record with 2,465 pull-ups (average 865 an hour) then kept going and broke the 12 hour and 24 hour records as well.  He finished with 3,186 pull-ups in 11 hours and 58 minutes and 3,376 pull-ups after 15 hours and 48 minutes. And those are all straight arm pull-ups with perfect form!
Pull-ups are one of the exercises I've been working on a lot this past year but after watching that video clip I realize I have a lot more work ahead of me if I want to get anywhere close to those kind of numbers!
