Full disclosure here, I can’t do a single pull-up. Not one. If my life were in danger and the only way to guarantee that I didn’t die was to do one pull-up I would be dead. Sure I could spend a few days a week lifting weights at the gym, but…meh. It’s not like doing a pull-up is any impressive, especially after you watch Maibam Itomba Meitei pump out 16 pull-ups in 30 seconds using only his pinky fingers.
Meitei weighs 115 pounds, so he didn’t have a ton of body weight to pull up. Still, when he reached for the bar, he looked totally at ease, pumping out 16 pull-ups in 30 seconds, which is more than most of us can do the normal way. The whole time, his pinkies were wrapped around mini metal hooks attached to the bar.
Even more impressive: Meitei had been training to do this for 14 whole years. Which means that he was just 12 when he decided pinky pull-ups were going to be his claim to fame and fortune
Yeah…I’ll never be able to do this. Ever. And I’m completely okay with it.
