A seven-year-old boy from Iran claims to have broken a world record after completing an impressive 3,000 sit-ups in 130 minutes.

Amirali Baghaei from Shahriar city, who sports an impressive six-pack, has a rigorous training regime. He does judo, wrestling and boxing sessions, as well as cardio workouts and water sessions every week.

"For breaking the world record, I practiced for two months and performed three thousand sit-ups. We registered it in the IMARO organisation (Iran’s sporting records body). Hopefully, we will register it in the Guinness World Record book,” he said.

Footage shows the boy training with his dad, Sadegh, who says his son's diet and health closely monitored by top professionals.

“Amirali does not have a specific diet. Yet he is supervised by Iran Olympic Committee’s nutritionists, he undergoes checkups monthly for his highest weight and diet,” he explained.

As well as entering the record books, Amirali dreams of world title glory: "I am sure I will get an Olympic medal one day," he predicted.
