Utah resident Benjamin Snow has been a lifelong fan of Guinness World Records and often wondered which records he could attempt. According to the Guinness World Record website, Benjamin loved juggling when he was growing up and was thrilled with the idea of holding a record in it, especially when considering the “danger” aspect of juggling axes.

When he first started, he was barely hitting 200 consecutive catches, and his forearms would be very sore for a few days after. Within a few weeks, he was up to about 500 consecutive catches, and the soreness was not nearly as prominent the day after his sessions.

Then, on August 12, 2020, Snow achieved 937 axe juggling catches in American Fork, Utah.
