59. Ken attempts to break a pull up world record… and fails


In this week’s show Ken talks about his recent attempt to break the Guinness World Record for most Pull Ups with a 100 lb pack in under a minute and the soul crushing defeat he felt upon learning months later the attempt was disqualified… alright, soul crushing might be a bit much, but he certainly was in a mood.

Ken explains to Sonia why it’s worth dedicating a full episode to a failed attempt. He discusses exactly how much time he allotted for sulking. The lessons he learned from the setback and outlines the process he’s adopted to refocus, map out a new strategy and get back after it to attain world record glory and win back the respect of his young children.
