Most likely mine would look like the gorilla's. Not sure about you and brian but I suspect that they'd somewhat resemble the structure of a platypus forearm.

If you care to wrestle a lowland gorilla, I will happily watch with popcorn and whiskey.

Here you can clearly see the idividual difference in the biceps muscles insertion point (Tuberositas bicipitis radii) on the proximal radius bone. I hope you can see which are the two strong individua

This just popped into my head - When gorillas are swinging from tree to tree they can hold their own bodyweight 500-600lbs+ with one hand

Its just common sense really, they have evolved and adapted to be the way they are for a number of different reasons.

Fun fact that may not contribute much to the thread, but I thought I'd share. English is my second language and I don't live in an english-speaking country, so forgive me if this book and author are a mandatory read for many of you as kids, or whatever... but this week I got interested in reading a story book by Edgar Allen Poe, and the very first book deals with some murders were extraordinary strength must have been needed to perform them, and.... well, I almost don't wish to spoil it in case anyone has not read it yet, but lets just say that it reminded me of the whole Primate-to-humans comparisson thread :)

Yeah, about many of important things in my life... But, Not that I'm as strong as an Ape!

We can put ya in a cage with them and see how long your nose and your "other parts" stay on you-- they are known for ripping those off, in attacks.

So who thinks a gorilla can close the hercules gripper? Serious question. If you don't think a gorilla could, then what gripper could he close? The galaxy?

ChimpGrip you are right about we shouldn't over think stuff before testing it. But you know what? I think you know deep down that Gorilla's are stronger than us and yet you are acting stubborn. I have been in many feilds in my life (sometimes I can be stubborn too but to a some extend which I admit it's not right if you want to learn). and many are so stubborn that they only want to hear what they wanna hear.

Listen mate. Accept the fact that Gorilla's are stronger. Plus it's not worth to argue with your mates here over chimps and gorillas. Seriously dude!

Serious ok, I think it would shread his palm skin off before even getting

close. That would be no way to messure somethings grip that can rip

flesh right off the bone.. mangle bannana trees and twist steel bars

like pretzles.. There is a reason they are either in a cage or in the

jungle and you no as i no a f!@#$/^ silverbacks grip is stronger

if you cant figure that out then why wonder this wonder that,

Go to the zoo be like here ms. Silverback here boy.. I gots a gripper

for yas too try, then bam smack sh!@ another headline in the paper

now you no the ape is stronger only one big problem he kicked yo ass

and ate yo gripper.So see its bad to mess with nature very bad actually

I recall a few times my brother wondered if rose my hairy 8leged pet would

be cool to show his girlfreind when me and my parents was not there.

Needless to say rosey was fine but my brothers arm looked like its time

for a trip to the ER for a amputation. Ol o yea and this other time i had a

Pet (Snake) see the word snake? Means leave it alone! Anywho it was a seven

Foot long ball python named maggie, yea i know weird name for a snake.. dont ask

my mom hated it but named it? Yea beats me to. Anyway same thing again brother

Thinks hey i will screw with this python and look cool even though i will proble get my

Ass bit then WHAM! Got him good. So the moral of my story is simple nature may look

Like it can just be toyed with and tested and even underestimated, so if i was you i would

Leave the apes be ! Peace

I just want to be super strong and want to accomplish some big things in the world of strength (as well in life, too)

If you want to be super strong, just train buddy. Set the #3 as your goal then if you get there the #4..then tell us how realistic you think it is to be able to close the Hercules gripper.
