Received an e-mail today from an individual telling me about his friend that has enormous grip strength
and went on to ask if his friend could perform 3 to 5 grip feats of my choosing would it be worth show casing
his friend? I immediately replied back and said absolutely!
He went on to say that it's his understanding that only one or two individuals have cleaned and pressed
a Thomas Inch Replica and he mentioned Mark Henry as one of these individuals. I asked him is he's suggesting his friend can pull this feat off? If so, I would have to see some video proof and if he's an unknown I would also ask that the DB be weighed in the video as well. I went on to say that if his friend can pull that feat off it wouldn't be necessary to prove his grip strength any further but I can list several things for you to suggest to him to try.
Now the part I haven't told you! This guy claims his friend has had absolutely no grip training whatsoever!
He sent me 2 pictures of his friend holding what he called a blob but it appeared to me to be 5 or 6 #10 plates
pinched together with one hand. The other picture is of his friends hand spread out on a sheet of paper with
a tape measure off to one side. The guys hand is easily 10" in length but not necessarily that thick for this kind
I will download the 2 pics and post them here late this evening. In the mean time I'm waiting to hear back this guy
to find out if he minds me mentioning his name and the name of his friend of which he hasn't told me yet.
Don't worry! I asked all kind of questions to this guy about his friend.
Did anyone else here get a similar e-mail today?
