Man in pain from ‘wind or water’ breaks push-up record with 3,182 in one hour

A bloke who says "wind or water" cause him immense pain has recently broken the Guinness World Record for most push-ups in an hour.

Australian athlete Daniel Scali managed to break the incredible endurance test on his third attempt, which saw him shatter the previous record of 3,054.

That record was set by Jarrad Young, a fellow Australian who has since seen his record smashed by Scali, who also holds the world record for longest time spent in the abdominal plank position.

Scali's endurance has bagged him two Guinness World Records but the 29-year-old has spoken of the immense pain his body goes through every day on YouTube.

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 virtually my brain telling my left arm that there's pain there. Anything from a soft touch, wind, movement, so I shower with my left arm out of the shower because anything like water, especially, is like a thousand razor blades running across my arm."

The horrifying pain Scali finds himself tackling didn't stop the athlete from powering through over 3,000 push-ups in just one hour.

Scali's Herculean effort saw him complete 3,182 push-ups, crashing through the previous record and cementing Scali as a two-time world record holder.

His previous efforts saw him work out eight hours a day, every day, to power through and manage the longest-ever abdominal plank position.

The 29-year-old held the position for nine hours, 30 minutes and one second late last year, and spoke to Daily Mail about his incredibly strict fitness regime.

His workouts were split into three sessions, with two hours of training in the morning, an hour at lunchtime and a hefty five hour session after work, where Scali would plank for upwards of five hours.
