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.

V1sual B1nary

Hand from tip of middle finger to wrist crease - 7.1"

Forearm- 12.3'' straight

Wrist- 6.1''

Waist- 36"

Best gripper- COC #2 (but only ever done it once, cant do it again) For repeated closes the #1

Hand Span - 8.4"

V1sual B1nary, how long have you been training grip? It looks by your forarm to wrist ratio, that

you could do quite well if you set your mind to it.

P.S. You are the first to crack the mythical 2-1 ratio of forearm to wrist.

Welcome, ape_man_escaped, some mighty impressive numbers both biometrics and mechanical.

Be forewarned that some of the old timers and top grippers will call for proof on this.

I take you at your word and hope to be reading about your accomplishments in the future. :rock

Gotta ask, what is your eutopic training regimen? sets, reps, poundage, etc.

I didnt realize that you were measuring the forearm relaxed.Forearm measurement relaxed is 15.625

I understand that my measurements are unbelievable to a point. I posted a picture of myself in my profile.

I'm also a firm believer in "the proof is in the pudding" I've always been working my forearm since i started training

16 yrs ago. Done alot of wrist curls,farmers walks,sand bag work, sledgehammer work, thick bar training.Armwrestling has helped my forearm development as well. I do alot of pullups with single and double fingers.(which is quite hard at my bodyweight)

As far as gripper work, The first time i picked up a #2 I closed it. The number 3 was another story but still was within a quarter inch. I been doing over crushes with a filed SM I also been doing over crushes with my filed down #3 I just got my 3.5 2 weeks ago. My buddy has a old gripper that i been doing severe negatives with till my SE and #4 come in.

My finger length is 3.25 and my palm width is 4.00 I been trying to follow Teemu training regimen and see where that takes me. Alot of my success i attribute it to the KTA program and the Gripper book that features the holle brothers and the 1st #4 closer(cant remember his name) I'm open to all questions. can profide pictures just have to give me some time to load them on my computer.

Besides a couple of pictures in your gallery of that forearm, I'm curious about your other lifting numbers!! :)

If you are still updating, I have progressed to closing a #2 with a no-set.

I have real small bones I think

forearm 12.75

hand 7.75

wrist 6.75

waist 34 right now varies alot

palm 4.5

middle finger 3.25

Best gripper #4

also my bodyweight changes alot depending on what I'm doing I'm pretty sure my forearms were around 13.5 last year held straight out.

My weight last year was up to 270 and I went down to about 185 but right now it is 210 so that makes some diff

patrick, I added your link to your gallery video close of the COC #4. I hope that this is OK with you. BTW,

I have not viewed this yet. Thanks for contributing to our statistics thread. My browser could not pull it

up but it could be my outdated software.

ape_man_escaped, your hand measurement = palm + middle finger do not add up. You gave 7.5 for hand size

and then palm = 4 and MI = 3.25.

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.

You can upload them to your gripboard gallery and then just copy and paste the web address, or even simpler post them in your gallery and tell us they are there. You upload them to the gallery by going to the "my controls" button up by the sponsors links, then on the left click on "my albums" when it pops up it will have a scroll down screen that says "choose operation", scroll down to "upload media" and click and just go from there.

Sam's forearm is nowhere near 16".

A 16" straight forearm is a BIG forearm.

It was when i weighed 265lbs, and measured gooseneck flexed. For comparison i now weigh 230lbs. I have lost a lot of fat and size since early last year plus realised that the forearm must be measured with the arm straight. I thought gooseneck flexed was standard way of measuring. measuring with the arm out straight and foream flexor felxed theya re 13.75''.
