BRENTWOOD, Tenn.- A
U.S. Navy Seal on Thanksgiving leave in Nashville is
attempting to break a world record for the most number of pull-ups done in a
"You've got to see what your limits are," says 37-year-old David
Goggins arrived at Brentwood Hills CrossFit around 8:00 a.m. on Sunday. He'll
stay there until 8:00 Monday a.m. completing about five pull ups every minute.
"I guess I'll have the world's record for most pull-ups in one
day," he added between sets.
Goggins has tried to break this record once before. Back in September, he
appeared on the "Today" show, but halfway through his attempt, the
bar he was using to pull up on began sagging. At one point he injured his wrist
and was told by doctors not to try for the record again.
"The more it hurts the better he likes it," says David's mom
Jacqueline who was acting more like his coach on Sunday.
"He's just gotta make sure he stays healthy and paces himself,"
Currently on leave, Goggins is visiting his mother who live in Nashville.
After trying for the world record he'll ship back to his Naval base in Hawaii.
