Mark Jordan, 54, has reportedly set the new record for the amount of pullups completed in 24 hours with a total of 4,321. The Corpus Christi, Texas, man who is in unbelievable shape for his age, beat the old record by 111 pullups. Just like Mao Weidong’s recent plank record, this is an amazing feat of fitness.

Jordan set the record at CC Crossfit in Corpus Christi and told Kii News that it took the bones of a year to prepare for the feat and that strategy was key. “It’s been a year of trial and error, and the reason for that is that you’ve got to decide on a pace that will allow you to do enough within a 24-hour period, but at the same time not to do too many at a given time so that you burn out,” he said.

Not only did Jordan break the record, but on the way he also helped raise awareness for The Hammonds Education Leadership Program. More Power to you, Mark and congratulations! According to, Jordan started his record attempt at 5 a.m. on November 3 and wrapped at 1 a.m. the next day. Once the feat has been verified, it will become the new Guinness World Record. We found some footage of Jordan in action at the start of his record attempt.
