woah my fingers would rip off long before I got that heavy, very impressive!

 

Watching some of his other videos and he is a machine, ridiculous lifts all around.  Has he done any grip contests or other strength contests?

I don't think he has done many grip comps, atleast not in a long time.

 

I remember browsing the IM forums a few months back after following a link from google and I found a thread concerning grip monsters who stay out of the spotlight and Chris James' name immediately came up. Someone on that forum, not sure if was Randall Strossen, Rich Sorin, or another legend was talking about how Chris James could easily change the world of grip if he decided to keep pursuing and train for it enough.

 

After a quick search, here is a list of witnessed feats he has performed, as written by a third party and not himself:

Some of those seem quite unreal thats for sure,-like 1,100 rack pulls Double overhand for reps for one but a few stand out-

 

The ones you picked out seem believable though I have seen video of guy named dario do 265lb one hand clean on video

 

The one hand deadlift might be hook grip?  I know mark felix has done near 500lbs one handed but think he used a hook grip.

 

He is incredibly strong no doubt though hope he continues to post videos would love to see him compete at like mighty mitts.  Thanks for sharing the video and the information on him.

Squat more - number 16 bro!

James is a manster for sure. A couple of these feats will read as a no way no go but i don't think it's that the mans lying with rack pulls etc probably just the bars bent or bending so much it doesn't spin like regular.
