Out of over 40,000 world records that the Guinness World Records currently registers, many are truly admirable and inspirational for others. However, some world records have been set in such weird disciplines that it will make you wonder about the record holders’ sanity. To show you some of the most bizarre world records ever set, we compiled this post with 25 Bizarre World Records You Shouldn’t Try to Beat.

Hardest kick to the groin
One of the most painful world records ever set, the hardest kick to the groin was delivered by American MMA fighter Justice Smith and weathered by combat expert Roy Kirby. The kick had a speed of 35.4 km (22 mph) and force of 500 kg (1,100 lb).
The smallest waist belongs to American Cathie Jung, who has a corseted waist measuring 38.1 cm (15 in). Un-corseted, it measures 53.34 cm (21 in). Since 1983, she has worn a corset 23 hours a day, only removing it for her daily shower. (Photo used with permission from Cathie Jung.)
