[quote="spug_myers"][quote="baldy"]Maybe consider it a warm up?

I went for it as a cool-down. I had a number in mind. THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST (45).

And got there (just though :oops:) - 46

1000 rep pushup video on youtube would be removed due to issues of tedium. That's why they don't exist.


Ow, that is so sneaky of you to take my second place by one rep!
Wait till next week, I predict a half century.

201 pushups would clearly put you in the number 1 position. :lol:

[quote="JohnBarleycorn"]Maybe Youtube isn't the first thing on everyones mind ?

Maybe they haven't got Youtube in their prisons ? Or in their special forces units ?

:shock:

World record for non-stop pushups appears to be 10,507 by Minoru Yoshida of Japan. It's no longer maintained by Guinness Book of Records though, they use the "most in 24 hours" instead (46,001).

Spug, you know very well that just isn't possible by non-military personel !

He can't have been a civilian !

He made it up ! Its not on Youtube, so it didn't happen ! :lol:

Prisoners in the US can't own video cameras therefore they can't upload vidoes to youtube.

I think Sweden has a state funded program that allows prisoners to own video cameras while they are incarerated so they can upload vids to youtube as part of their rehabilitation along with counseling.

I have taken to doing all my training in camo shorts and an olive-green tshirt. Hopefully that will be close enough.

The next stage in pushup domination for me comes in getting through the tricky 40-50 pushup range, where your chest and triceps get so pumped that you abandon the effort in order to check yourself out in the mirror :oops:

That's annoying. It took me all of last year to do 30,000 and I felt pleased with myself.

You'll interested in the world record for the year then...

1,500,230 by Paddy Doyle. You might remember him, he was never off Record Breakers in the early nineties.

An interesting challenge from his info page: http://www.recordholders.org/en/records/doyle.html

in one hour: 429 one-arm press-ups, 323 burpees, 400 squat thrusts, 592 alternative squat thrusts (15 minutes for every exercise), 10 April 1994, World Gym, Birmingham

Yep, Paddy Doyle has some crazy records. That's a few thousand each day. That other one's impressive too.

And his website says he did 8 1/2 years military service.
That's all the proof I need. 8)
