A former Malaysian cricket player has placed his name for a second time in the Guinness World Records for box jumping on Oct 15.
Beat his own world record
Harinder Sekhon, who works as a full-time Mathematics teacher, broke his second Guinness World Record by recording the ‘Highest Seated Box Jump’ at 1.52 meters.
To do so, the 31-year-old underwent rigorous training for 11 months and followed a strict diet.
Harinder also practised jumping to the top of the box while in a seated position, which isn’t an easy feat to carry out.
However, he managed to do the seemingly impossible and even a part of him could hardly believe that he succeeded!
Shared his training process
Speaking to WeirdKaya, Harinder shared the training he went through to smash his own world record.
I have three to four leg days in the gym where I’ll do weighted exercises and also explosive plyometrics and jumping exercises.
“I also go to the track once a week to work on my speed and jumping.
“My diet mainly consists of only home cooked food that’s prepared very cleanly,” he said.
Harinder added that he hasn’t had a cheat meal, desserts, soft drinks or fast food since deciding to break his record nine to 10 months ago. *gasp*
He’s also working on setting another record in the first quarter of 2023 for long jump.
