A teenage girl named Irina Rudometkina just broke the world record for the most consecutive pull-ups completed by a female. She did 51 pull-ups, and they counted 48 of those for the record, which is recorded here. I only saw one rep that looked iffy. So, I’m not sure which of the others the official didn’t count. But regardless, she did an amazing, world record-worthy job. See for yourself…
So, she did 23 reps without stopping, squeezed in a a couple of doubles, and then completed the remaining reps in singles – resting in the deadhang position between reps. Reminds me of the quote by Navy SEAL and ultra-endurance athlete, David Goggins:
“When you think you are done, you’re only 40% of what your body is capable of doing. That’s just the limit that we put on ourselves.”
It’s not everyday that you see someone perform 50 pull-ups. Actually, I think I can count on one hand how many people I’ve seen do that. Obviously, Irina worked very hard to achieve this feat, likely spending years training herself to achieve that kind of performance. She certainly earned it.
So, congratulations to Irina Rudometkina! She is a Pull-up Immortal.
