Butt skipping is like jump rope, except that you do it with your butt. Instead of leaping over a rope at just the right moment, you clench your buttocks together and propel yourself off the ground just long enough for the rope to slide between you and the ground.
Yi Zhihua of Chongqing, China, hopes to secure the Guinness World Record for completing the most butt skips in a single minute. Training has been very hard. Yi's bottom has taken quite a pounding in the process, but he keeps trying to improve his performance. GBTimes reports:
The student told that when he first started practicing, his skin was sore and bleeding after just a few skips. The painful injuries took weeks to heal, hindering his practice sessions.
But constant training eventually turned the skin covering Yi’s buttocks tough as leather. Although butt skipping is still a pain in his behind, the wounds heal faster, allowing him to train more.
The current record is held by Kyle Hendricks, an elementary school student in Pennsylvania.
