Mark Jordan, 54, set a record this year for the most pull-ups in a 24-hour period. The winning number? 4,321. Phyllis Sues, 92, still does a headstand every day. "I intend to be, and probably will be, standing on my head, doing pushups and leg splits, as long as the sun comes up! That's my plan," she said.
