Commenting on the upcoming attempt, Adil said, “Born weak to breaking one of the toughest fitness world records that exist; will show people that through hard work and perseverance, nothing is impossible. We all need to condition our bodies and minds to achieve our greatness. We either break and crumble in the face of difficulty or rise and overcome. The choice is ours to make as we all hold the power.”
