The most push ups in one minute carrying a 100 lb pack (male) is 55 and was achieved by Irfan Mehsood (Pakistan) in Dera Ismail Khan, Pakistan, on 25 December 2020.
Irfan has been practicing wushu since 2005 and has now earned his third dan as a black belt. Through seeing videos of record holders and reading several editions of the Guinness World Records book, he started to get inspired and worked towards record titles of his own.
Irfan trains between four and five hours daily for every record he attempts until he feels he can break the one he's aiming for. It isn't uncommon for him to develop aches in his shoulders and back, especially while attempting records with weighted packs like this one. Though he always perseveres carefully until he reaches his goal.
One of his main aims through breaking records is to promote his region of Waziristan all while advocating a healthy lifestyle and staying active. Irfan hopes to soon achieve a total of fifty record titles.
