For standardization purposes, use:

  • actual waist size at largest circumference and not pant size
  • forearm measured with arm straight and wrist not cranked(fist clenched is OK)UPDATE, let's use a relaxed forearm
  • hand size measured from first crease of wrist to then end of middle finger
  • We also have to make sure it's standarized. I.E. palm is considered first crease of wrist to first crease in middle
    finger and finger length is considered first crease in 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 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.

Something to note from the addition: The top gripster on the list has bar-none the lowest Waist/forearm ratio. Does this hint that a good grip (at least for grippers) may more likely come from someone with a good body composition (low body fat%, muscle, etc.)? Probably not surprising, but interesting to note.

Me, you (Bonzi), and five others have a 3+ ratio. Seems we are spread out at the bottom half of the list :blush

Yep, pretty good correlation. Better body composition leads to better results.

BTW, this thread was originally about BMI ratios. Seems to have come full

circle to my first statistical grouping.

Exactly, superfeemiman, never let personal interests override the common good. :)

I probably should update mine, but I still can't get that rusted #2 of mine shut. :angry:

Also, I have been busting my forearms and have maybe added a 1/4 inch to 'em.:angry:

If I could find room, I would like to add hand span from end of pinkie finger to thumb.

Mark Felix has a 12 inch span and supposedly has the biggest hands on the WSM tour.

Indeed, I didn't notice that. I just have an inherent interest in stats though (aka a statswhore), I like every addition.

lol.

And by all means I would love to see hand-span added, it's as important as hand length if you think about it.

I'm also hoping to update mine soon too. I've been consistently || closing my HG300, which I haven't done in a long time, and I've been getting to less than 1/4'' on the #3 with the same set, so I think I'm getting close to the big close. Yeah, I know 1/4'' is not really that close, but compared to my previous efforts I have increased quite a bit. Going from pretty much always closing no set or near that most workouts and then changing it back up to harder, intense heavy-single workouts tends to give me great gains. I just tried to confirm my beliefs and I can nearly hold my #3 shut except for the tiniest fraction, and I'm not at full strength right now.

I suppose I'll add in span then just in case to get the ball rolling. From the tip of my thumb to the tip of my pinky, if I stretch quite abit I get 8 13/16 or 8.8125".

I have added yet another column to our crowded sheet for hand span measured from the end

of the pinkie finger to the end of the thumb.

  • 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.

Got curious on the span and measured both hands. I'm left-handed and my left seems a little more flexible since I get an extra 0.25" on it. Span = 10.0" My hands actually ache a little after doing that. :unsure

I have a feeling that my span will be quite abit towards the lower end.

My hand span is 8.8''. I have to basically do a full 150 degree angle stretch with my pinky and thumb to get it, yes I have midget thumbs.

For standardization purposes, use:

  • actual waist size at largest circumference and not pant size
  • forearm measured with arm straight and wrist not cranked(fist clenched is OK)UPDATE, let's use a relaxed forearm
  • hand size measured from first crease of wrist to then end of middle finger
  • We also have to make sure it's standarized. I.E. palm is considered first crease of wrist to first crease in middle
    finger and finger length is considered first crease in 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 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.

Hmm, I just rechecked with a straight ruler(I used taylor's tape before, I know though that a straight ruler is more accurate) and got a good solid 9.0" Righty and 9.0" Lefty. Just trying to be as accurate as possible :) I really want to see how this list looks in the future.

10" hand span, mesured on top of a metalic tape rule. I spreaded it as far as I could, pinky hurts heheh.

How is the palm measured? Is that length of palm or width of palm?

For standardization purposes, use:

  • actual waist size at largest circumference and not pant size
  • forearm measured with arm straight and wrist not cranked(fist clenched is OK)UPDATE, let's use a relaxed forearm
  • hand size measured from first crease of wrist to then end of middle finger
  • We also have to make sure it's standarized. I.E. palm is considered first crease of wrist to first crease in middle
    finger and finger length is considered first crease in 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 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.

Stretched all the way out my span is 8 3/4

- Aaron

An 8 3/4 span on someone who can lift the blob like you can gives me hope! Despite handsize.
