today is World Sit-Up Record Day. In 2002, Edmar
Freitas, a Brazilian weight-training instructor, completed
111,000 sit-ups in 24 hours to break the former record of
103,000 set by American champion Bill Evans. In 2003, he
reportedly broke his own record by 6 hours and nearly 23,000
sit-ups, for a total of 133,986 in 30 hours. Wow!
