55 Guinness World Records [Pix]

Submitted by: ElectricEye 1 year ago in

A former paratrooper has broken 55 Guinness World Records for endurance sports in the past 25 years. Paddy Doyle"s world records include the most one arm push-ups in one calendar year - for which he had to do 4,000 per day - as well as the most competitive full contact rounds in boxing.
The 49-year-old has also completed the most sit-ups in five hours while holding a 50lb steel plate, the most step-ups carrying a 50lb backpack in five minutes and the fastest cross-country marathon carrying a 40lb backpack.
Mr Doyle, from Solihull, West Midlands, has even broken 31 records this year alone, mostly for cross-country runs while carrying weights on his back.
As well as his 55 Guinness World Records, Mr Doyle also holds another 149 records which have been recognised by other record-breaking bodies.
The fitness fanatic began training for the endurance challenges after a stint in the army, which he left in April 1986, where he said he learned about discipline and keeping fit.

Currently trying to beat his record of 49 squats in 1 minute with a 40lb pack.
Hoping to make it a charity event and raise money for Cancer Research at my place of work, atm I can do 49. He won`t be keeping that record long!

It doesn`t have the dates on any of these... I remember seeing him maybe 15 years ago on The Big Breakfast (UK TV show) and he had many of these back then. It`s possible most of these were when he was younger... I could be mistaken, he could be keeping up with them!
