According to Guinness World Records, “he currently holds six Guinness World Records titles.” His most recent record, for “Most Push Ups to Planks in One Minute” wasn’t easy.
“It’s a difficult one because you’re trying to coordinate a plank to a push up whilst keeping the form. Obviously, you’re battling against the clock, so I’m trying to do more than one a second, which is gonna be difficult,” he explained to GWR.
The pushup to plank movement involves starting in a high plank position, then lowering the body down on the right forearm, then onto the left.
“I’ve never done that much. I think I started off fast then fatigued quick. I’m knackered after that, but buzzing.”
Goulding’s previous record was 63 reps in one minute, but on his second attempt, he managed to get in 67 reps (though one was disqualified because he started before the timer, resulting in a total of 66 reps).
“Without a doubt, of all of my Guinness World Records titles, this is the one which is the most physically demanding on the body,” he said.
