A 73 y.o grandpa cracked his own record in lifting a wood block, Tengrinews reports. This time he lifted the six-kilo wood block 9 thousand times in four hours and 22 minutes.

Ivan Ivanov, also known as Zhan-Ata, used meditation and established a connection with space to prepare for the challenge.

The Kazakh record-breaker was brought up in an orphanage and that is where his name - Ivan is an unusual name for an ethnic Kazakh - comes from.

He considers himself a person possessing superpowers. It is not the first time Zhan-Ata surprises his audience with his unusual abilities. It his previous acts he swung a punching bag with his psychic power, lifted the wood block 6666 times and performed one thousand sit-ups.

Although his name is already in the Kazakhstan’s Record Book, Zhan-Ata says, he is not doing it for the Guinness World Record, but to popularize healthy lifestyle among his fellow Kazakhstanis. Every morning he does morning exercises, runs 7 km (4.3 miles) and starting from March till late Fall he walks barefoot. He was a USSR master of sports in boxing and sambo and studied martial arts in a Shaolin Monastery.

Zhan-Ata promised to continue surprising the public with his new records.
