Welsh gym enthusiast Carlton Williams has returned to take back his Guinness World Records title for the Most push ups in one hour.
Have you seen this man who broke a record? That record has proved to be one of the most hotly contested fitness records we monitor, with three challengers raising the bar since Carlton achieved a total of 2,220 back in 2015.
Arriving at the Body Club Fitness Centre, in his hometown of Margaret River in Western Australia, he had a tough mark of 2,392 push-ups to beat.
Not only did Carlton have to maintain the strength to spend 60 minutes doing the grueling exercise, but he also had to make sure his form was correct throughout.
The clock did not stop at any point during Carlton's attempt, and both his hands had to remain flat on the floor for the full 60 minutes.
Doing the push-ups, he had to lower his body until a 90-degree angle was attained at the elbow, to add the rep to his tally and for it to be accepted by the attending Guinness World Records adjudicator.
With a grand total of 2,682 press ups, Carlton can certainly say he did what he came to do – at least until someone else comes along to challenge his impressive titel.
Carlyon had enough stamina to do 2,682 press ups – do you have the stamina to watch the whole attempt?
The most push-ups in one hour (male) hold 2,682 and was achieved by Carlton Williams (UK) at Body Club Fitness Centre, Margaret River, Western Australia, Australia, on 27 May 2017, according to the Guinness World Records.
Carlton's record attempt was witnessed by two qualified fitness instructors who monitored his push up form.
Another record for the most one arm push-ups completed in one hour is 1,868 and was set by Paddy Doyle (UK) at the Munster Arms Hotel, Sparkbrook, UK, on 27 November 1993.
The most push-ups completed in 24 hours was 46,001 by Charles Servizio (USA) in Fontana, California, USA, on 24-25 April 1993.
