Lucas Helmke, 33, from Brisbane, Australia, pushed his strength and endurance to the limit to break the record for the most push-ups done in one hour.

Lucas performed 3,206 push-ups in an hour – that’s an average of over 53 per minute.
The previous record of 3,182 was set by another Australian, Daniel Scali, in April 2022.
Lucas broke this record to “give inspiration” to his one-year-old son and to “show that nothing is impossible”.
Lucas trained for two to three years to break this record.
The official tryout took place at his old powerlifting gym, Iron Underground in Brisbane.
Lucas was required to maintain perfect form for each push-up or it would not count toward the record total.
The body must remain straight throughout the push-ups, meaning it cannot be bent at the knees or waist. The body must be lowered until an angle of at least 90 degrees is obtained at the elbow, then raised until the arms are straight.
Only 34 (1%) of Lucas’ push-ups were disqualified due to poor form, which is an impressively low number considering he was going as fast as possible to break the record.
Having achieved this Guinness World Records title, Lucas is not resting on his laurels – he intends to break at least one record every year from now on.
“This will be the first record I would like to set of a number of other push-up records,” Lucas said.
The record for most push-ups in one hour has been broken repeatedly over the past decade.
Before Lucas and Daniel, the record was held by Australia’s Jarrad Young, who broke it three times from 2018 (with 2,806 push-ups) to 2021 (3,054 push-ups).
And before Jarrad, in 2017, the record belonged to Carlton Williams (Great Britain; 2,682 push-ups).
Carlton first broke the record in 2014 (1,874 push-ups) and then again in 2015 (2,220 push-ups).
Amazingly, Lucas managed to complete almost 1,000 more push-ups than Carlton’s 2015 record.
