Thirty-year-old 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.

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, he smashed 210 walnuts with his head in one minute. He also claims to be a record holder for crushing the highest number of drink cans. “I have already attempted five Guinness records. But my aim to make 50 records and make my country proud,” said Naseem.
