Breaking his own record, an Australian man set the world record for doing the maximum number of push ups in an hour.
52-year-old Carlton Williams has set a world record after doing over 2,500 push ups in one hour in Australia. An hour-long video of his feat has already been uploaded on YouTube.
According to Guinness World Records, Carlton first achieved the fitness record for “Most push ups in one hour (male)” in 2015 by doing 2,220 push ups. He broke his own record by doing 2,682 push ups in 60 minutes.
“I did it to prove I’m the best,” said Williams, a construction worker.
As per the rules, he 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. He did not stop at any point during his attempt, although he did take brief breaks to catch his breath and rest.
His impressive record has floored many. Watch the video here.
