There is not only a world record, but several. New records are set up regularly in various disciplines. The pull -up is not a disciplines of the power trivial and will therefore not be seen on powerlifting competitions. The only “official” pull -up competitions are available from the Guinness Book of Records. Various disciplines are divided there.

Now we come to the individual pull -up world records. A distinction is made between chin-ups, namely pull-ups in the ridge handle and pull-ups, pull-ups in the rist handle. Unfortunately I have only found a few videos on the records. On the video inserted below you can see that it was actually complete pull -ups.
