The most push ups on medicine balls in one minute (male) is 95, achieved by Kris Scott (UK) in Hampshire, UK, on 12 February 2022.
Achieving a Guinness World Records title was a childhood dream for Kris. His parents would always buy him the GWR annual each Christmas and it was the highlight of his day. He found it inspiring reading through everyone's amazing achievements and so promised his dad he would one day make it into the record book.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, he was motivated to fulful his dream and began focusing his energy towards achieving this record. As the gyms were shut and outdoor exercise was restricted, it gave Kris a reason to wake up in the morning and was a big factor in helping to navigate the pandemic.
He spent 14 months training, completing over 66,000 push ups on medicine balls! On the first day of his training, Kris could barely hit 50 in one minute but has now been able to surpass the previous record of 68 by almost 30. He says "it's been a great example that I will apply to other aspects of my life and that is if you can believe you can achieve something and you stay disciplined and never give up then you really can achieve anything in life. You just have to believe in yourself."
