The record for the most consecutive pinky pull-ups was set in 2014 when Maibam Itomba Meitei did 16 consecutive pull-ups with his pinkies, according to the Guinness World Records organization. Metei set the record by using only his little fingers to perform full pull-ups in which his chin cleared the pull-up bar.

The record was set in Imphal, Manipur, India when Metei, an Indian citizen, was 26 years old. Metei trained extensively to accomplish his feat, which required him to fully extend his arms on his way down and fully clear the bar with his chin on the way up. As of February 2015, he still holds the record.
