A resident of Russia’s Krasnoyarsk was included in the Guinness Book of World Records after he was able to do 3810 pull-ups in six hours and 5825 in 12 hours, according to the website of the city management on physical culture, sports and tourism.

Fifty-five-year-old Nikolai Kaklimov made the achievement on Dec. 25, 2016, but in the Book of Records, it got only now.

It was on Dec. 25 of the last year when 55-year-old Nikolai Kaklimov achieved his record-breaking result, but it took several months to get into the Guinness Book.

In Krasnoyarsk, the judges of the Union of Skiers-Riders of the Region registered the pull-up.

Kaklimov’s pull-ups were counted by the judges of the regional Union of Skiers. They also recorded a video that was sent for official confirmation to the Guinness Book of Records’ commission.

The Russian man managed to surpass the record of Jan Kares, which he installed in 2014 at the age of 41 years. For 12 hours, the athlete from the Czech Republic managed to do 4654 pull-ups.
