Punjab Teen Who Never Went To The Gym Bags Guinness World Record For Most Pushups With Claps

The Guinness World Record (GWR) for performing the most push-ups with claps (fingertips) in one minute was set by a fitness enthusiast from Punjab who reportedly never visited a gym.

On February 8th, 2022, 19-year-old Kuwar Amritbir Singh from Umarwala hamlet in Batala in the Gurdaspur district of Punjab set a record by performing 45 pushups in 60 seconds. He did finger push-ups and clapped after every dip. According to GWR, Kuwar tried this record in an effort to motivate Indian youngsters.

“Guinness World Record Holder! Yessss I Did it. ‘Most Push ups with claps ( finger tips ) in one minute'” he said on Instagram.

Kuwar detailed his preparedness for the task in the social media post. He admitted that in order to beat the record, he had only practised for 21 days.

Kuwar also claimed in a different post that he never went to the gym, didn’t take supplements, and simply ate food that his mother made. The teen even created his own gym equipment to increase his level of fitness.

“It wasn’t tough to break this record ‘ yess!! Because it’s a common thing for everyone that we have to work hard if we want to achieve our goals,” he said.

The young man from Punjab also mentioned that he wants to build a nation that is healthy. By posting exercise videos on his social media accounts, he helps with this. His accomplishments over the years have also inspired young people.

The post’s caption states that Kuwar, who is 18 years old, is the youngest athlete to complete a maximum of 118 Knuckle pushups in 60 seconds. He was also the youngest person to complete 35 Superman pushups in 20 seconds, according to the India Book of Records. The Karmaveer Chakra Award, which is given to honour, promote, celebrate, and inspire civic action for social justice, was also nominated for him in 2021.
