Chinese professor sets sights on world knife-blade push-up record

A 57-year-old physics professor by the name of Xie Guanghai has turned his back on science and decided to make a name for himself doing push-ups on knife blades.

The reason why Xie doesn’t get cut from the 4,000 or so push-ups he does each day is that his hands have developed deep callouses. Can he do it? If his conventional push-up performance is anything to go by then it shouldn’t be a problem – he already has a couple of records for normal push-ups including one where he did 6,012 in a row… which probably has something to do with his youthful appearance.
