It is almost impossible for a teen to lift more than 100 lbs using shoulder. But a frail Indian teen has created the world record for lifting 122.22 lbs weight with only his shoulder blades. The name of this iron man is Abhishek Choubey and his age is 19, who performed the Herculean task in his hometown of Madhya Pradesh in central India.
This young lad had to wait for 84 days for the recognition of his stunt by the Guinness World Records. This teen Hercules dubbed as ‘Steel Blades’ began the stunt in a squat position with a wooden block with a hook stuck between his scapula and held the weight for a whopping 20 seconds.
He broke the previous record of pulling 113.32 lbs by shoulder blades held by a Chinese man Feng Yixi. The second year commerce student had earlier pulled a 1050 kg car with his shoulder blades to set a Guinness World Record. Despite his thin frame, the boy won hearts of many with his remarkable show of muscle but admitted it was no mean feat.
He worked really hard to build the stamina. He used to wake up at 4:30 am every morning and did yoga for an hour before running for five kilometers. He started pulling small stones and later children sitting in chairs and tables for fun with his shoulder blades. However, gradually the adrenaline rush and applause from peers encouraged him to take bigger challenges.
