Anthony Robles, the athlete and long-time LifeVantage consumer, broke the world record for pull-ups in a single minute this past weekend.
Robles, the one-legged wrestler who won the 2011 NCAA 125-pound title, cranked out 62 pull-ups Sunday during the NY Jets–Buffalo Bills game at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, besting Harvard Professor Adam Sandel’s previous record of 61. The record is pending final Guinness verification.
Robles’ world record attempt was sponsored by Nike, Freemotion Fitness, and Sandy, Utah-based LifeVantage.
“Anthony embodies so much of what LifeVantage and our biohacking community are about,” said LifeVantage CMO Ryan Goodwin. “This is someone who, against all odds, has optimized his body and physical performance at the highest possible levels. His is a truly inspiring story.””
Robles’ NCAA title attracted worldwide attention and helped earn him ESPN’s “Jimmy V Award for Perseverance” and a second Espy Award for “Best Male Athlete with a Disability.” A movie about Robles’ life is currently in the works.
