    These aren't what you call "one handed push ups" he was just moving with his head and a little bit with his arm

    Awesome attempt. Congratulations. 37 more than I can do. You need a better video recorder though as it was hard to see. How about doing a left handed attempt next?

    Ian, congrats on a tremendous achievement. Extremely impressive.

    Push-ups are very difficult to measure objectively. If we apply our standard push-up criteria to this category (see side bar), it's hard to call this a successful attempt.

    Should we create a different set of criteria for junior world records and/or one-handed push-ups? Would love some input from those in our community (Paddy Doyle, Shaun McDaniel) who regularly compete in these types of categories.
