Punjab youth earns Guinness World Record for most push-ups with claps. Watch
Kuwar Amritbir Singh from Punjab achieved the world record for most push-ups with claps (fingertips) in one minute on February 8.
Kuwar Amritbir Singh, a 19-year-old fitness enthusiast from Punjab, bagged the Guinness World Record for performing ‘most push-ups with claps (fingertips) in one minute’. The Punjab youth, who never went to the gym, did 45 push-ups in sixty seconds to achieve the feat.
He took to Instagram to share the excellent news with his 1.7 lakh followers on the platform. "Most push-ups with claps (fingertips) in one minute (45). This is the original video of my Record attempt. Guinness World Record holder," read the caption of the post shared by him.
Kuwar Amritbir Singh, in another Instagram post, penned that he started his journey to make it to the Guinness World Records in November 2021 but faced rejection. "I felt very disappointed because of the rejection in my 1st record. But as we know that facing rejection in your journey doesn't mean that you will never achieve your goal, and that rejection means you will achieve more than it, but you have to work hard more with full dedication and come back stronger with full power and then again give it a try," he wrote.
Singh's rejection didn't stop him, and he applied again for the record, only to achieve it. "So I applied for the 2nd record i.e "most push-ups with claps (fingertips) in one minute." I have just practised for 21 days to break this record & it wasn't tough to break this record!" he continued.
Towards the end, he shared a mantra for passionate people who want to achieve big in their lives. "So, at last, I would only say that if you have passion for doing something or you have done something for your passion, then never give up in your life. Just keep working hard with full dedication, keep practising, keep improving yourself daily, believe in yourself, work hard on new skills & have patience."
In a separate Instagram post, Singh revealed that he never went to the gym, didn't take supplements, consumed food made by his mother, and even managed to build gym equipment himself.
