This is not your average round of limbo. Shemika Charles holds the Guinness World Record for lowest limbo, and although she comes by some of the flexibility naturally—her mom was a limbo dancer for 16 years—she also trains for six hours a day. Her chiropractor, whom she sees every week to stave off career-ending injuries, says she's the best all-around athlete he's ever seen. The 22-year-old has been limbo-ing since she was 14 and now makes a living performing at NBA halftime shows.

Now that she's successfully completed the car limbo, Charles says she has new records to break. Up next: the longest limbo.
