Australian man sets record with 2,200 pushups in an hour

Thursday November 19th, 2015

Back in 2014, Carlton Williams set a world record for most pushups completed in one hour with 1,847, which seems like a lot of pushups for a month, let alone 60 minutes.

Despite the impressive mark, it seems the 50-year-old Williams was not satisfied with the performance, as he recently set a new standard of fitness with 2,200 pushups in the allotted time.

The Guinness Book of World records has strict rules about what constitutes a proper pushup, so you can be sure that Williams maintained proper form for each of his 2,200 reps, all of which can be seen in the video below, if you have an hour to kill.

It is fascinating to see someone push his body to the limit like this, but even more impressive is that he still has the strength to put a shirt on at the end of his run.
