Strümpfel bgan with  31 steins filled with beer but two tipped over at the last minute, Reuters reported.

“I first did 27, because I wanted to be sure and then at the end I said, ‘Let’s add another one and get over 30’,” Strümpfel told Reuters. “Unfortunately it didn’t quite work, but having managed to put 29 down. … I think it’s amazing.”

Strümpfel said he trained at the gym at least three to four times a week since February. The steins he carried Sunday weighed 152 pounds, Buzzfeed reported.

“When I think about it, it’s 200 hours for about 40 seconds of walking,” Strümpfel said Sunday.
