  • On January 19, 2013, in Brentwood, Tennessee, Goggins broke the world record for the most pull-ups done in 24 hours. He completed 4,030 pull-ups in 17 hours, and set a new world record. Record that he failed at it twice. Reaching 67000 pull-ups in total of training.

His foundation for life was a congenital hole in his heart, bullying and death threats for being black, physical and mental abuse by his father, a depressed mother, a step dad murdered, poverty, learning disability, ADHD, PTSD, social anxiety and a stutter.

Just a couple of old movies that inspired him (Rocky and Platoon), some songs that he would chant in torturous situations (Going the Distance, Speed of Sound, Adagio in Strings) and a documentary of BUD/S (Class 224) that he saw on TV.
