Mechanic Smashes World Record for Most Push-ups in an Hour – A Whopping 3,183 – All While in Pain


An Australian mechanic has smashed the world record for most push-ups in an hour—completing a staggering 3,182.

Daniel Scali took on the Herculean task in April and managed to surpass the previous total by 128—cranking out 51 push-ups every minute for a solid hour.

His feat has been officially confirmed as the second Guinness World Record achieved by the 28-year-old, following his record-breaking stint last year when he spent nine hours and 30 minutes in an abdominal plank position.

And, incredibly, he has done all this while suffering from a condition which can cause excruciating pain.

Daniel, from Henley Beach, has suffered from a condition called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) since he was 12.

It developed when he broke his arm and it’s virtually his brain telling his left arm that there’s pain there.

“Anything from a soft touch, wind, or a slight movement can cause unbearable pain,” he says. “I wanted to prove to myself that I have learnt how to deal with and manage pain, which lead me to my attempts.”

Daniel’s efforts to beat the push-ups record took three attempts, but meanwhile he has also raised $61,000 for the Australian Pain Management Association.

“For me breaking these records has been about raising awareness for chronic pain sufferers and inspiring belief in others.

“If you convince yourself that pain is a fuel to keep you going… I believe anyone is capable of anything they put their self out there to achieve.

“I wanted to show that you don’t have to be sheltered by the pain and it doesn’t have to be a barrier to success.

“Although at times it might be hard and the days may seem longer, if you continue to pursue your goal, you are guaranteed a better outcome than those who don’t.

“I’m extremely happy and grateful to everyone that supports me with my achievements and I’m already looking forward to what comes next!”
