Waseh, according to the Guinness World Records, the most number of pull-ups done in 24 hours is an astounding 7,715 achieved by Brandon Tucker from the US in 2019.
Not that local calisthenics trainers Jordan See and Sebastian Teo aka "jordandseb" are aiming to beat that record. Rather, these fit hunks are aiming to finish 10,000 pull-ups combined in 24 hours as part of a donation drive for our migrant worker friends.
"Jordan is stronger and lighter than me," says Seb. "So, chances are, out of the 10k pull-ups, he will do 5,000++!"
Project "Pull It Together"
The duo is striving to complete the challenge as part of Project "Pull It Together", a social-cause campaign headed by pushpullgive in patnernship with NGO @itsrainingraincoats to raise $10,000 to aid migrant workers in Singapore.
Donations will run from Labour Day (1 May, this Sunday) to 31 July 2022 and will be collected mainly via giving.sg.
"Pulling through" tough times together
The duo's pull-up endeavour is a form of respect for our migrant worker community, and acknowledging and thanking them for their hard work and contribution to Singapore's development and growth.
Pulling out all the stops
So far, training is going well. As of 1 April, they've managed to complete a whopping total of 2,500 pull-ups in 2.5 hours.
