Caine Eckstein destroyed the Guinness World Record for the most pull-ups in 24 hours. He beat the 12-hour record as well when he completed 4210 pull-ups in front of Today Show cameras live in Times Square, New York yesterday.
Pull-ups are one of those exercises that leave you exhausted in less than a minute. Caine Eckstein’s goal Monday was to do them for 24 hours — in an attempt to break the Guiness World Record. And he did! Eckstein broke the record for most pull-ups within 24 hours with several hours to spare.
He finished 4,210 pull-ups within 12 hours! He in fact broke two Guiness World Records: most pull-ups within 12 hours and 24 hours. The previous record within 12 hours was 4,024 pull-ups; 24 hours was 4,182.
