Eighty-two pushups in a minute may sound highly improbable.
But K. J. Joseph, a resident of Munnar, did just that and walked into the record books. He bettered the world record for the most number of pushups of 79 in a minute held by American Ron Hooper.
Joseph, who is also an Ayurveda practitioner has already set his eyes on improving his record. He says his next target is 90 push-ups in one minute.
He has already entered the Universal Record Forum by doing 2092 push-ups in an hour.
In the past, Joseph has successfully attempted physical feats, including breaking iron rods with bare hands.
Joseph is now set to make an entry in the Guinness World Book of Records. But he will have to wait for the officials to validate his accomplishment.
