Have you heard the story of David Blaine? He is the world record holder for holding ones breath for the longest amount of time. He was underwater for seventeen minutes and four seconds. He was basically a magician. He lived in a coffin without any food drinking only water for a month. And the coffin was underground to. He pushed himself to the limits and kept on pushing.
He stood up on a three hundred feet tower in Chicago for two days and the tip of the tower did not have enough space for one man to stand up on both feet. He managed to stay there for two days. He also said that when up there he hallucinated hard. He hallucinated so much that all the building around him, the high rises of the city was animal head and they were howling. He liked beating or creating records. Just think about the coffin challenge. How many of the seven billion men of the world is going to do that. I don’t think we cannot find one in fifty million even. He was always up to the challenge. Living in a coffin for two weeks only with water, just try to imagine all the horrors he had to go through. The horror became his life then I suppose. All those bad tidings along with it, I don’t think I can ever do such things.
Then again another record he did was living in a glass box suspended from tower bridge of London. He lived in a glass box for two straight months with only water which the scientist thought was not possible. Every one of them thought he will withdraw and that he cannot do it past two weeks. Startling all of them he lived in that suspended glass box for two months.
The whacky Londoners flew around the box with helicopters showing him hamburgers to make him get out of the box but even after all the alluring of the food he persisted and got out after two months. When he came out he donated his blood samples to science to test the human survival puzzle.
When he thought of doing the breath holding record he looked for the previous owner of the title. The previous one was very well built man of height six feet nine inches. And he also had twice the lung capacity of a normal human being. He didn’t use the http://diet-authority.com though.
So first he wanted to lose weight as David was a bulky overweight men going on with his mental strength till now. So he kept on losing weight and improved his lung capacity. He took his blood pressure down to 38 which was lower than most of the Olympic athletes. And with this conviction he is now holding the record. Previous was 16 minutes 30 seconds and he broke the record at seventeen minutes and four seconds.
