Rashid Naeem, a citizen of Pakistan is now a proud owner of a new world record for cracking open most coconuts in a minute.
Thirty-year-old Rashid Naseem is able to smash 43 coconuts with his head in just 60 seconds.
Rashid Naseem said he had been preparing for the record attempt for over six months. “It took a lot of preparation. I had to work hard on my strength because breaking a coconut by head butting can be painful,” said Naseem.
Trained in professional martial arts, Naeem has a head that can easily bust open coconuts without suffering injuries.
Naseem runs a martial arts training school in Karachi. “Fresh coconuts are hard to break. So when I started my training and began hitting coconuts on my head, I used to get splitting headaches,” he said. “It felt like a dangerous thing to do in the beginning. But with proper training, I was eventually able to strengthen myself enough to do this.”
This is not the first time Naseem has broken a record. Last year, Naeem was able to smash open 210 walnuts with his head in under 60 seconds. He also holds the world record for breaking open the highest number of canned drinks in a minute.
Naeem has already attempted to break 5 Guinness world records using his head.
He aims to break 50 such records that can only be broken using his head.
