Rakhim Kurayev from Russia has completed a record 3,202 consecutive press-ups at the age of five. With the achievement, he has broken six world records. Making way into the record books, he completed 1,000 press-ups in just 40 minutes 57 seconds and 2,000 press-ups in 1 hour 30 minutes. Video of the child doing his record-breaking stunt has gone viral on social media.
Rakhim does not look like the average five-year-olds; he has a strong built with well-defined abs, biceps, strong shoulders and chest. His physique has given him the nickname 'five-year-old Schwarzenegger'. Strongman Ramzan Kadyrov, a native of Chechnya can be seen cheering as the boy attempts the stunt. Kadyrov who judged the event said, "I did not in the least doubt that he would manage to repeat his record in the presence of the Commission of the Book of Records of Russia."
