By the time he was 36 years old, David Rush had broken nearly 200 Guinness World Records titles.

As per GWR, before the attempts for these records, David prepares by doing four things: “1) experimenting with his breathing, 2) determining whether he should sit or stand, 3) Thinking of how to best position his body and 4) testing what slurping method works best when consuming liquids”.
