    Indian man does 114 fingertip Pushups, sets record

    Indian enters guinness
    - By Taus Rizvi

    Mumbai: Success, they say, is a never-ending process and the need to succeed only gets bigger as one eyes difficult challenges. Bibhuti Bhushan Nayak, a six-time Guinness Book of World Records holder, seems to be an ideal example, as he successfully registered his new world record on Wednesday.

    He created a world record by performing the maximum number of fingertip push-ups in a minute’s time.

    The dynamic Nayak, who is also a fitness consultant, recorded 114 consecutive finger tip push-ups in a unique event attempted for the first time in the history of Guinness Book of World Records. After creating the world record at DAV Public School in Airoli, an elated Nayak said, "I feel great to make my mark in the Guinness for the sixth time. It was difficult but I enjoyed it."

    Nayak, who is also a free-lance journalist and a tax consultant has also been included previously in the Guinness Book of World Records for various feats such as performing 819 backhand push-ups in an hour (2001), 133 palm push-ups in a minute (2002), smashing three concrete blocks with the help of his groin (2002), 136 backhand push-ups in a minute (2003) and 27 one arm pull-ups in a minute (2004).

    One always needs to be in physical shape in order to triumph in such events. "I was always confident that I would succeed as I used to do 4,000 push-ups daily and drink 15 litres of water. I am a pure vegetarian so I did not find it too difficult to attempt this feat," said Nayak, who also has seven Limca Records to his name.

    The 39-year-old was a bit unhappy that his family was not around to celebrate with him. "I never got my family’s support as my parents are too old to understand this, and my wife and children are against it because I am not able to give them the time they require because of my busy schedule," he said.
    What the hell is wrong with this man? :eusa_shif

    OKAY GUYS, Y'ALL BETTER GET BACK TO DRINKING 30 LITRES OF WATER AND DOING 5,000 PUSHUPS, I'LL BE OVER HERE :eusa_clap

    I don't think there is anything wrong with this guy, he just does not have anything better to do with his time.

    Yeah, at least he's bettering himself, I don't know anyone who could do that, so it's pretty damn impressive!

    I saw part of the video on the news and he's not doing full pushups. His arms don't come to a full 90 degrees.

    A push up is a only a push up if your body is straight and your nose touches the ground, unless your pinoquio.

    The US Army standard is that the elbows have to bend far enough that your triceps are at least in a straight line with your shoulderblades while your body forms a straight line.
