How a Coast man plans to smash a world record

MOST people struggle to complete one pull up let alone 8000 but a Coast man is hoping to do just that.

Jamie Milne will be attempting to break the Guinness World Record attempt for the most strict pull ups in 24 hours this month.

The current record was set at 7620 and Mr Milne was not only attempting to beat this but smash it.

Mr Milne is the managing director at Jamie Milne Training at Warana and has worked all over the world with professional ranked athletes.

He said anyone could do anything they put their mind to.

"Passion is far more powerful than motivation," he said.

While Mr Milne said the record attempt was about pushing himself, he would also be raising money for an important cause.

"The record attempt is in the name of charity," he said.

"I'm currently an ambassador for the Memory Walk and Jog Events in Queensland."

The record attempt will take place from 2pm on June 29 at the Sunshine Plaza.
