With my training I don't really focus on how my body looks.. I make sure each movement is symmetrical and form is proper and in your weakest part of whatever movement you're doing make sure you drive even harder because the results will be exponential in comparison of just catering your workouts to your strengths. You have to focus on the little muscles that help drive the primary movers of your body's motion. That's how you get stronger. 🇺🇸💯
Marine Corps Sgt. Michael Eckert holds the Guinness World Record for most no kip pull-ups with hands pronated on the bar in 60 seconds.
But does that stop him from pushing his body to the extremes in fitness? Fuck no. The 26-year-old Marine, who is stationed in Iwakuni, Japan, shows that he can do just about anything on the pull-up bar.
Eckert from Winter Park, Florida has extreme body control and remarkable core strength that allows him to defy gravity on the pull-up bar.
“Originally I started making videos just as a fun reference to always have something to look back on my progress,” Eckert, who has competed in the American Ninja Warrior, told Task & Purpose. “I started sharing them on Facebook with family and friends then Instagram and everyone really started to enjoy them. A lot of the funny, odd videos come from the inspiration of my Marines.”
Now he has over 34,000 followers on Instagram thanks to his remarkable skills. Check out his videos that are completely amazing.
