A lot has been made of Viktor Makurov completing 67 pull-ups in 60 seconds. The Daily Mail even ran a story on it saying he accidentally broke the world record for such a feat.
While impressive, you have to know your history. Chris Spealler already did this FIVE years ago and one-upped him on his way to 100 unbroken pull-ups. Oh, and this was less than two weeks before the CrossFit Games. Spealler does 68 pull-ups in the first 60 seconds on way to 106 pull-ups in 96 seconds. So what’s all the fuss about for 67 pull-ups?
