Seaman Jason Armstrong, from the U.S. Navy, broke three pull-up world records Monday in honor of Memorial Day.

All his sweat and hard work was for a good cause. He did it to raise money for the Wounded Warrior project, which helps seriously wounded service members.”The guys I’m raising money for have done more than me already, and I’m just doing what I can,” Armstrong said.Armstrong set a new six hour record with 2,465 pull-ups, averaging 865 pull-ups an hour Sunday night.

He would go on to simultaneously break the 12 and 24 hour pull-up records with 3,186 pull ups in 11 hours and 58 minutes.

Armstrong finished with a total of 3,376 total pull-ups after 15 hours and 48 minutes.But Armstrong said his contribution is nothing compared to what the men and women in uniform have done for our country, and he kept going in honor of Memorial Day.

In all, Armstrong raised nearly $5,000, but for those who still wish to donate, the Wounded Warrior Project will continue to accept donations on his behalf through the end of June.
