VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - A man has broken the world record for most pullups done in 24 hours to raise money for a Virginia Beach-based nonprofit.

The Virginian-Pilot (https://bit.ly/1VBQi4N ) reports that 55-year-old Rodney Hahn broke the record on Memorial Day by doing 6,844 pullups.

Hahn raised more than $7,800 for the Navy SEAL Foundation, a nonprofit that supports SEALs and their families.

Hahn says the pain he went through didn’t compare to what military families go through.

In September 2015, Hahn attempted to break the 24-hour record, but failed to do so. After months of training, he tried it again and was able to break the record by 44 pullups.

Hahn is a former Navy serviceman and a current fitness trainer.
