Paddy Doyle embarks on year long challenge with new world record

16 August 2010 - Paddy Doyle in record breaking action

Balsall Common’s fearsome endurance athlete and serial record breaker Paddy Doyle recently embarked on a monumental challenge to break the most fitness and endurance world records in one year, with the second of these coming on 16th August when he broke 1 minute world record for back of hands push ups carrying a 40 lb back pack. Paddy’s staggering 42 push ups broke the previous standard of 40 set in 2008 belonging to American fitness trainer Andre Turans. The target for the year long challenge is to beat Paul Woodlands, who set 29 world standards in a calendar year, so only 28 more to go then.

Paddy’s latest feat brings his career total of broken records for different strength, speed and stamina disciplines to 182, of which 108 are still current today.

His main aim is to also beat Paul Woodlands title, of holding the most fitness endurance records achieved in a calender year which currently stands at 29. So it seems the Balsall Common strength athlete has got a tough year ahead.
