    Those are all below average weaklings. Normal healthy men could crush no.1 with easy and get #2 at next trainnig session. You are sourronded by weak men.

    Back when I first got into Grip (2003) I took my Grippers with me to have people try fairly often. The big surprise was rock climbers were terrible on gripers but could hang from their fingertips forever - mostly on the small size they just didn't have much crushing strength. Mechanics and the various construction trades could often close the #1 and sometimes the #2 but not often. Block layers were one group with beastly hand strength it seemed - I'd like to see what those guys could pinch more so than grippers.

    You can do whatever you want. I'm not telling you what to do. It was just meant as an advice.

    This "big guy" must be skinny as fua.k! Shreded to the bone! You sure you didn't forget to add at least 30 pounds?

    Both me and my dad could close the #2 when I got it. Not brought it to work though. But I did bring my GG5v2 to work (warehouse) and one guy almost closed it TNS, maybe a mm or two away from getting it, and the guy is 6'6-6'7 and around 200lbs . Everyone else couldn't even get it to parallel.

    To all who said I “shoulda done it this way”... The whole point was to test gym rats ... that was what I wanted to see... if you or anyone else wants to start the thread of testing whoever you like, have it. Would be interesting to see more results. My aim, as stated in my original post was to see it the GRIPS matched the PHYSIQUES.... but in true GB fashion, everyone is gonna tell me what I should or shouldn’t have done with my testing. On that note... I’m out.....

    You should test people who work with their hands, not gym bros. The gym bros use straps when they lift, they don't develop any grip strength. Unless you go to a lifting gym where people actually compete in strength sports you're not going to find people with strong hands, unless maybe it's a juiced up bodybuilder, they might have strong hands. I've tested around 6-7 people on grippers and all of them could close #1 once I showed how to do it. Also tested a few old people 70+ one of them could close the trainer and most of them could not. The strongest guy closed a Silvis T-Rex set to around 105# with a loud click, not technique just a pure TNS. I had another T-Rex in a choker at around 140-145# which he also closed with a loud click, no "setting" there either. Everyone I've tested besides the old folkes were gym people, the only guy has never been to a gym was the the strong guy, he works as a car mechanic.

    My 3 year old niece closed coc #2 first try. It is common knowledge that all women start at #2.5. You all pussies.

    NEW MEMBERS Introduce Yourself Here

    Hi Kandai, my name is David and I'm from Spain. I think we're pretty close in terms of age, weight, height, and goals. I'm 21, 174 cm tall, and weigh 75.4 kg. I've never armwrestled as you did and have been lifting for a bit more than a year. I can already close the CoC#2.5 (not rated, sorry) with a parallel set, so my next goal is to close it with a credit card set.

    I haven't handed my 2 to that many people, but none that I have has been close at all. Of all the stories of this kind I've heard, it seems to be extremely rare to find someone who close it first try.

    Okay so couple points I want to address here. 1. it just occurred to me why others don’t seem to find strong folks out there.. it’s because you lack the in-your-face personality I have.. 🧐 I am not timid to get right up in the middle of everything. Anywhere i go. 2. “I will stop when you stop.” Your actually saying this because you’ve made the decision to continue to bestow upon us more of you’re self loathing. Because you know I won’t stop gettin all up in these threads. 😁 Okay fine. Self hate away. 🤷🏼‍♂️ I can say that it doesn’t take a genius to see that every single person here really doesn’t want to hear it. As is vaguely evident in their responses to it. I’ve yet to get that same riff with my shenanigans. But the day I do, I shall change it up or take a break! but no. No one has personal issues when they don’t want to see someone in their proverbial circle hate themselves all the time. And feeling some guilt for not helping, or having an eagerness to help is an obvious sign of compassion for others. So please don’t insult it?..

    Ill do it when you stop hopping from post to post trying to be the center of attention. Bah gawd. You guys feel however you want. Feeling guilty over something you have no influence over sounds like a personal problem.

    Captains of crush #2 brought out on the town

    Okay fine Shawn... You win. You suck at everything... now can we keep the self loathing to a dull roar? Or If your gonna self loath publicly, do it tastefully and keep it fun for everyone. what no one has dropped on you yet is that you do it (self loath) in a way that makes us feel obligated to encourage you otherwise. Because if we don’t, then we leave out feeling guilty or something.

    Btw Joe, not trying to pick on just you here. I’ve seen many similar posts since I’ve been in grip since 2011. To me it just seems impossible that grip guys don’t run across others with strong grips. Especially when taking into account the combined years in grip around here. and it’s not just grip I witness this same phenomenon with. For example when I started my bench thread, like 8-9 people kept trying to convince me how rare 3 plates on the bench was.. let alone 4 plates. it was mind boggling imo.. like, what? do those people live under rocks? Also seen similar sentiments on squat strength in the past. During my 8 year enlistment I saw swaths of guys in various different groups on various military base gyms taking turns running trains on 4 plate ATG squats. Just about every time I was at a base gym there was a group of guys that would sneak in the gym when on duty squatting 4 plates in working uniforms. I mean that’s not also to say I didn’t see my share of other groups doing half squats with way less weight in those same gyms.. 🤷🏼‍♂️ But still. so I don’t know.. I guess my exposure to brutes most of my life has been much different than most? But again, does that mean I’ve been lucky or something? In my mind, the answer is no... some stuff is just not that uncommon. Just look harder. Talk to people more. Stop walking around out in public looking at you’re damn feet or you’re phone! I guess you could compare it to bar fights or something?.. yeah, a bunch of people get to say they never were a part of dumb shit like that.. but if you don't patron bars often, or never had a stint in you’re life where you did, then your experience is irrelevant on the subject. And can’t even be applied. Ask anyone who works a door at a bar how often mf’ers get hurt over a nothing. Or guys that claim they have never crashed a motorcycle.. okay.. do you even ride? see what I’m saying? Most of the guys who comment on what they think is rare strength wise have only stepped foot in a high school gym once or twice. Or maybe got that 1 membership to a health spa that 1 time when they were in their 30’s. And because that spa also had a set of free weights and they didn’t see anyone doing 3 plates there, then it’s not common.... sheeeiiit.. strong mf’ers don’t go to health spas. And rarely do they lift at gyms like 24 hour fitness. Walk into a military base gym. Take a tour of a prison facility that allows trustees to lift free weights. Walk into Metroflex and then tell me what you see. Rusty plates, body fluids on mirrors, chalk dust everywhere, bent bars all over the place, and a bunch of miss matched DBs. Because people who lift in those places ain’t there for anything other than to get strong, or stronger. im getting all over the place here, but am gonna keep going! have a look at the 375 raw bench race thread. And show me more than 1 guy in the race that even does his benching in a gym!.. if you can’t find strong people, it’s because you ain’t looking!

    Oddly enough, I’m starting to believe more and more that this is a thing.. of the inch first time inch lifters, yes, over half were arm wrestlers. But the #2 closers were all mechanics or tractor drivers I’ve worked with. And the 1 guy that closed the 2.5 is also a tractor driver, that has never lifted weights. When I showed him my 3 plates for 5 in the slingshot, he asked “how much is that?”. at this point tho, more what I think is going on is those around here who actually challenge people to grip feats aren’t actually seeking people they think “can” close it. I think more what they do is seek out the biggest guy that “can’t” close it, so they can blow the wind for their own sail afterward.

    The weakness of all this is you people are stroking it thinking of how you’re stronger than the average person. Bros, the average man in America is diabetic or prediaberic,, can’t do 3 pull ups, can’t run .5 mile, can’t go 4 flights it stairs before out of breath. Pathetic by 25. Only 10% of people in USA even go in a gym more than 3 times in 50 days. The home gym community can’t be accurately measured but decidedly smaller than commercial pot. Small crowd. Hows your crush measure up to Paul Knight? How’s your rolling thunder stack against Mark Felix? How’s your steel bending compared to Don or Tommy? Are you you really proud you’re stronger than Jimmy in accounting or Rufus who bags your groceries?

    I've had a good number of officers over the last 20 years close a #2 on their first try. The youngest has been 18. Which is the minimum age to be an officer. The two oldest were in their low 50s. Both of the older guys were very strong overall and were lifelong lifters. Neither had trained with grippers though. The lightest officer to close the #2 was 145lbs. The heaviest was 310lbs.

    Tommy, I think you are asking guys who work with their hands, and arm wrestlers. Not the case with others. i’ve never found a tradesman yet who can’t close a one, and never seen a generic gym rat yet who could. My experience was generic carpenters could close a 1.5, but the 2 always stopped them. I had a young lady from my office take a Number 1 to her CrossFit gym, and the only one who could close it was an electrician. And, maybe it has something to do with Texas...

    I YouTube checked and it looks like you just press a db from the face? I've never heard of that lift
