Every Wednesday we’ll be shining a light on the coolest, wackiest, or most unique records from around the globe recently approved by our Records Management Team with our Spotlight series.
This week we're in Massachusetts, USA to check out an impressive show of power from Ron Cooper who currently holds the record for the most clap pull ups in one minute.
After applying for our guidelines, Ron summoned up some serious upper body strength to set a world record with 21 clap pull ups in one minute on 16 June 2014. He then sent the footage to our records team for approval - the minimum amount of pull ups to establish this new record category was 15.
Ron intends to take on as many pull up Guinness World Records titles as possible and is known locally as 'The Pull Up Guy'.
A crowd of family, friends and fitness professionals witnessed the attempt which took place in Lynnfield, Massachusetts.
