THE CRUCIAL NUTRIENT FOR A BETTER FAT BURN

10 QUESTIONS FOR THE AUSTRALIAN GUY WHO JUST SET THE PULLUP WORLD RECORD

Pullups World Record 24-Hour / Instagram @caine.eckstein

The Australian endurance athlete set a new world record for pullups in a 24-hour period, hoisting himself up 7,620 times and smashing the previous mark of 7,306 set

Because Eckstein hadn’t heard of Shapiro’s record, the Australian approached the feat aiming to reach 7,000 pullups, which would have bested the pre-Shapiro mark of 6,844 set by American Navy veteran Rodney Hahn. Luckily for Eckstein, his team informed him of Shapiro’s exploits, giving him enough time to do the extra work, according to ABC News in Australia.

 

The 30-year-old was wiped after completing the record run, even though he hit the number with about 45 minutes to spare.
