Bill Kathan of Brattleboro did 35 eight-finger pushups in the Vermont Statehouse lobby. That's right-- no thumbs!
Kathan beat the previous record of 25 set by a man in Alberta, Canada.
And Kathan is no stranger to setting records. The 61-year-old has set dozens of records in fitness and exercise.
"Oh my hands are kinda bent right over, they feel like they've been squished a little bit, but I think I could have done a little better. On this marble it would be a little harder to do the pushups. If they were on concrete they would have stuck and stayed in place a little better. This is a little tougher, a little harder today," Kathan said.
And he's not stopping there. His next attempt will be to try to beat the record in back-handed pushups.
