A guy at the gym said he knew someone who could do this.  Of course I was skeptical and wanted to see a video - which was provided.  As far as I could tell from watching it one time from a smartphone - it looked legitimate.  The plate didn't break quite in the center - maybe about 2 or so inches offset.  It looked like he attacked it the same way one would finish a tough horseshoe - between the legs.  Has anyone else heard of or done such a feat???  Apparently this dude is a powerlifter- but I don't anything else about him.  It was a freaky feat for sure though!

Can you get the link to the video?  Sounds freaky as hell.  

 

(Caveat : A ton of my small plates have hairline cracks in them, so even if this guy is starting with an uncracked one I don't know exactly what this feat signifies.)

Never got the link to the video.  Sorry... I certainly didn't get a good look at the plate before it was snapped in half.  Certainly could've been manipulated.  But if it was legit, it's a very respectable feat.

If the cast iron was weak/brittle, it's certainly possible.

Lots of dudes who train Iron Fist, or Yong Qi Gong can do things like this.  I think Mike Gillette has also learned how to explode bricks.  People who are good at this can pick which brick in a stack of 10 will explode when they hit the top one.
