A video posted by Mr Rush on his Youtube channel shows his neighbour, Jonathan Hannon throwing 74 apples in a minute. Out of which Mr Rush managed to slice 56 apples.
Mr Rush revealed that the most difficult part of the challenge was bouncing on a pogo stick without using his hands.
Mr Rush mentioned on his website, "I was under time pressure since the neighbour's crab apple tree was going to lose all its apples for the winter and there was no way I wanted to waste that much money and/or food on store-bought apples."
He revealed that after a couple of failed attempts, he finally completed a minute without falling off the pogo stick.
Mr Rush has broken many records in the past. He has set the record for the greatest distance travelled while balancing a guitar on the chin. He walked 5.4 kilometres balancing a guitar on his chin until the instrument fell.
He has also broken a record by holding 150 lit candles in his mouth for 30 seconds. "Only 5 seconds in I could feel them slipping out so I had to clamp down even harder and bite in with my teeth to keep them from falling out," he added.
Mr Rush also stated that despite wearing eye protection during the effort, he had to cope with toxic fumes and the candles getting slippery due to his saliva.
