The Facebook founder’s Instagram followers commented on the jiu-jitsu practitioner’s post. “Not bad for an almost 40-year-old,” commented one user. “Beastmode, that’s impressive,” wrote a second fan. “Bada** mark! Under 40,” wrote another fitness enthusiast. However, not everyone seemed equally impressed with the 39-year-old’s Memorial Day tribute. Some thought the father of two wasn’t being honest about his time.

“That time is such a cap lmao. 20lbs weighted pull ups? Not with that physique,” one individual wrote. “Cap on the 100 pull-ups with 20lbs weight,” said another doubter. However, most people didn’t think Zucker had facked his time. One user even asked when Zuckerberg when he plans to enroll his daughters to learn Brazilian jiu-jitsu. “BEAST!!! and so awesome to see your daughters at it too! When are they starting jiu-jitsu?” the fan asked Zuckerberg, who recently won a BJJ tournament.
