Marine Veteran Steven Proto Does 240 Strict Pull-Ups in 47 Minutes

November 04, 2015

That’s right, 240 legit reps as a way of saying happy birthday to the Marines… This is damn impressive no matter how you look at it. Also, thanks to Steven for his time serving our country!

We wonder how long this would take the top CrossFit athletes to compete?

Here is Steven doing 239 pull-ups last year (when he was 20lbs lighter) in 34 minutes…

This year I did 240 pull-ups in 47 minutes 45 sets at 223 lbs.
First set of 20
44 sets of 5 pull-ups (Rest 10X speed)

Skip to 13:27 to watch my last set
Thanks for watching!
