KJ Joseph, an Ayurvedic practitioner (a form of holistic medicine) and martial artist from India, has beaten the Guinness World Record for the most knuckle pushups performed in a 60 second period.

Joseph was able to perform 82 pushups using both of his knuckles in just 60 seconds, besting the record set by American Ron Cooper last year. Cooper’s total was 79.

The 45-year-old Joseph also holds a world record for breaking iron-bars with his bare hands, and has been entered into the Universal Record Forum for doing 2,092 pushups in an hour.

According to Joseph, he has never gone to the gym to increase his strength.
