Athlete Daniel Scali has broken the Guinness World Record for most push-ups in one hour despite battling a rare condition which means even showering can cause him severe pain
A guy who says “wind or water” causes him immense pain recently broke the Guinness World Record for most push-ups in one hour.
Australian athlete Daniel Scali managed to break the incredible endurance test on his third attempt, breaking the previous record of 3,054.
That record was set by Jarrad Young, a compatriot from Australia whose record has since been broken by Scali, who also holds the world record for longest prone position time.
Scali’s endurance has earned him two Guinness World Records, but the 29-year-old has spoken out on YouTube about the immense pain his body goes through every day.
Speaking to the Guinness World Records team, Scali said: “So I suffer from a condition called complex regional pain syndrome. I’ve had it since I was 12 years old.
“It’s practically my brain telling my left arm there’s pain there. Everything from a gentle touch, wind, movement, so I shower out of the shower with my left arm because everything is like water, especially water, like a thousand razor blades running down my arm.”
The excruciating pain Scali is struggling with didn’t stop the athlete from completing over 3,000 push-ups in just one hour.
Scali’s Herculean effort resulted in him completing 3,182 push-ups, breaking the previous record and cementing Scali as a two-time world record holder.
In his previous endeavors, he trained eight hours a day, every day, to overcome and complete the longest abdominal plank position ever.
The 29-year-old held the position for nine hours, 30 minutes and a second late last year and spoke to the Daily Mail about his incredibly rigorous fitness regime.
His workouts were broken up into three sessions, with two hours of morning training, one hour at lunchtime, and a vigorous five-hour post-work session in which Scali planked more than five hours.
