Alabama - the Chin Up Capitol of the World

Down in Gulf Shores, Alabama, 28-year-old Johnathan Young appears to have broken a Guinness World Record by completing 15 chin-ups in one minute while wearing a 100-pound pack! Young took to the chin-up bar Monday at the Orange Beach Fitness Center to accomplish the feat. Of course the attempt was recorded and video has been submitted to Guinness for official certification. The current record is held by Australian athlete Marcus Bondi who managed 12 chin-ups while wearing a 100-pound pack. Young said he is considering pursuing other Guinness World Records in weight lifting. (UPI)
