The Evolution of Chin-Ups
In setting goals for physical achievements, it’s interesting to see what others have done. For example, on November 5, 2011, former BFS magazine cover athlete Case Keenum achieved his goal of exceeding Timmy Chang’s NCAA career passing record of 17,072 yards.

But you should be realistic in your goal setting. If you’re a sprinter, it might be a bit optimistic to set your sights on exceeding Usain Bolt’s record of 9.58 in the 100 meters, but you can certainly set a percentage of that.

According to Guinness World Records, rules for chin-ups (palms facing you) and pull-ups (palms facing away from you) include the following:

Pull-ups in 1 minute:
• (M): 50, Jason Petzold (USA), June 20, 2009
• (F): 39, Alicia Weber (USA), August 7, 2011
Chin-ups in 1 minute:
• (M): 67, Jason Petzold (USA), August 21, 2011
• (F): 36, Alicia Weber (USA), August 7, 2011
Pull-ups in 3 minutes:
• (M): 100, Ngo Xuan Chuyen (Vietnam), 1988
• (F): 74, Alicia Weber (USA), August 7, 2011
Chin-ups in 3 minutes:
• (M): 105, Jason Petzold (USA), August 21, 2011
• (F): 69, Alicia Weber (USA), August 7, 2011
Pull-ups in 1 hour:
• (M): 1,009, Stephen Hyland (Great Britain), August 1, 2010
• (F): 680, Alicia Weber (USA), February 27, 2010

When setting these official records it is permissible to dismount (although the clock will keep running). So now that you have the standards and know what’s humanly possible, start setting your own goals for chin-ups and pull-ups.
