Cheang Wai Hun, a student of the Faculty of Health Sciences and Sports of the Macao Polytechnic University, has won glory for Macao by breaking the Guinness World Record for the most single-arm pull-ups in one minute.
Cheang Wai Hun achieved a total of 21 single-arm pull-ups in one minute, breaking the previous Guinness World Record of 18, and beating what had been considered the extremely challenging 20-pullup benchmark. Cheang said that breaking the world record is a significant achievement in his life, and he will strive to make new records in the future. He also shared his own experience in fitness training, and how we should master movement techniques when doing sports, sensibly arrange our training intensity and training volume, and not to rush or train beyond our ability. He is also looking forward to more people taking part in fitness training.
