Rohtash Choudhary, a resident of Bhilai in Chhattisgarh, has set a new Guinness World Record for doing 1,000 pushups in 19 minutes and 20 seconds on Thursday. He shared that earlier the record was with a Canadian citizen for doing 1000 pushups in approx 28 minutes in 2012. Expressing happiness, he said in 2007 he suffered from a back problem due to which he was on bed rest for six months and later when he was fine he started doing yoga on a regular basis and this inspired him to do pushups.
