Just saw a bit on the news--some kid put up 2400 dead-hang pullups in 12 hours for a new world record. Any takers?

I think he should drink the 3.4 bottles of wine first then do the Pull-ups and the run. :biggrin:

Saw it on the news this am. Only info I have is that his last name is Armstrong, and he is in Texas somewhere. They mentioned his father holding the record for a different time interval (5 hour, maybe?) I assume this is the father: http://www.4mcd.usmc.mil/AOP/OSOHyat...%20Program.htm

(*work/family friendly link)

I also came across this article while looking for info:

(*also work/family friendly)

644 pullups in 60 minutes.

Hey Eugene, there's your next birthday challenge!

“He tries to do around 800 pull-ups and 900 push-ups a week, he said. “
Impressive!


“He eats a banana split every night."
Ahhhh, that’s the secret, hey?


"I'm just someone who's trying to keep in shape so I can do stuff with my kids when they're older," he said.
Ha, his kids will have to keep up with him.

I wonder if a Gravitron is acceptable?:lol:
