Irfan Mehsood, a well-known martial artist in Pakistan, has set a new Guinness World Record for the most jumping jacks in one minute while carrying a 40lb pack.
Irfan told the media that he attempted the record in Dera Ismail Khan in December of last year. The previous record holder was Egypt’s Mahmoud Mohamed Ayoub, who performed 89 jumping jacks in one minute.
“I broke his record by doing 94 jumping jacks in one minute. I’ve been doing wushu since 2005. “I was inspired to set my own records after seeing videos of record holders and reading several editions of the Guinness World Records book,” he said.
He said he trains for four to five hours per day for each record he attempts until he believes he can break the one he’s aiming for.
“By breaking records, I hope to promote my home region of Waziristan while also advocating for a healthy lifestyle and staying active.” “I’d like to break fifty records,” he said.
Irfan Mehsud is the only player in the world who has set 23 world records in the push-up category and has broken 13 Indian Guinness World Records. He has holds total 51 Guinness World Records .
