A 54-year-old Corpus Christi, Texas, man has set a new Guinness world record for most pull-ups done in one day with an astonishing 4,321.

Mark Jordan undertook the task in November  2014 to raise money for Hammons Education Leadership programs, but received official confirmation from Guinness on Wednesday.

Jordan told KRIS-6 that he hopes to inspire other people to discover the joys of working out, and the importance of maintaining proper health.
