Man trained in several countries and broke holds 25 Guinness book records.
Strength lies in muscle and strong muscle builds only with a strong mind. When you tell something to your mind firmly, your body absorbs it all. Be it creative art or martial art, anything is possible with mental strength. Gaining physical fitness is a tough job. It requires a lot of commitment, patience, consistency and endurance. Being fit is a choice that not everyone can stand on. Then what if we talk about being a pro at martial arts? Is it not close to impossible for a normal human? It requires a lot of will power, else it remains a dream. The story of an Indian martial arts Master Prabhakar Reddy is here to inspire us all.
Set To Break The Record:
It was in Andhra Pradesh, a state in India. A big table was arranged on which rows of raw and undamaged walnuts were placed.
"Wonder how his hand felt after smashing all of the nuts,” asked one person. “Forget about the record, look how organized the nuts were,” chuckled another.
What's happening by the way? What are these walnuts show all about? Well. A Pakistani serial record-breaker Muhammad Rashid broke and crushed 210 walnuts with his hands and now it's time to break the record. Hard and raw walnuts were placed in rows on the table and the contenders were given fabric gloves to wear. The walnuts have to be broken in at least two pieces in order to make it count. Indian martial arts Master Prabhakar Reddy crushed 212 walnuts in record time and created a Guinness World Record title of Most Walnuts Crushed by Hand.
“It was never going to be easy to break the previous record of 210, which was achieved by Pakistan’s serial record-breaker, Muhammad Rashid. But Prabhakar’s training paid off because he managed to raise the record by two”, said a statement given by Guinness World Records.
