The previous record was 3.47 seconds, set by China’s Yusheng Du in 2018, it said.

After lifting a total of 2,492.4 pounds by dumbbell curls in one minute in December, Virginia Beach’s Johnny Miller  got word that he had officially broken a Guinness World Record. 

Miller said he’s always been interested in strength training, but with military service and an attempt to make it in the NFL, lifting and exercise became part of his everyday lifestyle. In order to prep for the attempt, which needed to surpass just over 1,300 pounds, he said he worked with various amounts of weights to find a sweet spot in order to get the most reps and set the record as high as possible. After testing out sizes, he opted to go with 40-pound weights.
