Carlton Williams 52-year-old has set a Guinness World Record after doing over 2,500 push ups in one hour in Australia. An hour-long video of his feat, think you have the stamina to watch the entire clip?
What makes this already mind-boggling feat more impressive: Guinness says the one-hour pushup record is “one of the most hotly contested fitness records we monitor.”
According to Guinness World Records, Carlton Williams first achieved the fitness record for “Most push ups in one hour (male)” in 2015 by doing 2,220 push ups. He reclaimed it this year by doing 2,682 push ups in 60 minutes.
“I did it to prove I’m the best,” Mr Williams, a construction worker, said.
As per the rules, Mr Williams was required to keep his hands on the floor, while lowering his body until his elbows achieved a 90-degree angle for each push up to count towards the record. And although he briefly stopped to rest and catch his breath between reps, the clock did not stop at any point during his attempt.
For context, that’s roughly 45 pushups per minute, with perfect form.
