Done, Cannon.

Welcome, PanterA_jonathan and Jsmiley.

Some impressive powerlift numbers there, Jsmiley for your

small stature. Were it not for ape_man_escaped,

you would have the smallest waist to forearm ratio.

For standardization purposes, use:

  • actual waist size at largest circumference and not pant size
  • forearm measured with arm and hand straight out and unclenched fist
  • hand size measured from first crease of the upper hand at the wrist to the end of middle finger
  • We also have to make sure it's standarized. I.E. palm is considered upper/first crease of wrist to first crease at the middle finger and finger length is considered first crease at the middle finger to the end of the middle finger. thanks to superfeemiman for this standard
  • P = Palm Measurement
  • F = Middle Finger Measurement
  • H = Hand Measurement
  • See Post 72(www.gripboard.com/index.php?showtopic=24246&view=findpost&p=310339) in this thread for gripper rankings and poundages to close
  • The next to last column is the ranking of the strongest gripper closed(If there were multiple grippers as per the COC #1 and COC #3, I used the later version.)
  • I have broken ties(gripper closed) with the set used(e.g. TNS, then NS, then CCS, then ||). I also assumed that a small set was between NS and CCS. If no "set" data is given, I have to drop you to the bottom of your grip closed group.
  • Hand span is measured from the end of the pinkie finger to the end of the thumb while hand is stretched to its fullest. As a frame of reference, Mark Felix supposedly has the largest hand measured by World's Strongest Man officials with a 12 inch span.
  • The last column is Waist/Forearm
  • as per Pete, "W" in the rating column means a subjective eval of strength of gripper

Thanks, I have to keep myself pretty small as I do semi-pro boxing in my spare time I fight as a welterweight (147lbs), I try to stay under 155lbs as my walking around weight. With continual grip training my forearms are likely to get larger, and I hope I can fight off my love of cheeseburgers enough to keep my waist exactly where it is at, my goal some day in powerlifting is to bench press three times my body weight, and squat and deadlift four times bw (this is a dream goal that I will probably not reach, like crushing a #4)

anyway I was chiming in to let you know the other two measurements that I neglected to tell you last time

palm 4 1/2"

middle finger 3 3/8"

For standardization purposes, use:

  • actual waist size at largest circumference and not pant size
  • forearm measured with arm and hand straight out and unclenched fist
  • hand size measured from first crease of the upper hand at the wrist to the end of middle finger
  • We also have to make sure it's standarized. I.E. palm is considered upper/first crease of wrist to first crease at the middle finger and finger length is considered first crease at the middle finger to the end of the middle finger. thanks to superfeemiman for this standard
  • P = Palm Measurement
  • F = Middle Finger Measurement
  • H = Hand Measurement
  • See Post 72(www.gripboard.com/index.php?showtopic=24246&view=findpost&p=310339) in this thread for gripper rankings and poundages to close
  • The next to last column is the ranking of the strongest gripper closed(If there were multiple grippers as per the COC #1 and COC #3, I used the later version.)
  • I have broken ties(gripper closed) with the set used(e.g. TNS, then NS, then CCS, then ||). I also assumed that a small set was between NS and CCS. If no "set" data is given, I have to drop you to the bottom of your grip closed group.
  • Hand span is measured from the end of the pinkie finger to the end of the thumb while hand is stretched to its fullest. As a frame of reference, Mark Felix supposedly has the largest hand measured by World's Strongest Man officials with a 12 inch span.
  • The last column is Waist/Forearm
  • as per Pete, "W" in the rating column means a subjective eval of strength of gripper
