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.
