Grip strength needed to do this?

Recommended Posts

I thought this would be interesting and kind of funny. Saw this clip recently and thought I would share this scenario on here. 

How strong should your crush grip be to do what Arnold does in this scene? Be a CoC #4 closer?

Gripping the hands shown in the clip would involve simple joint-locks you can learn from Jujitsu, Judo and any real self-defence instructor. It's not about crushing the hand, you are attempting to limit the person's movement so you can control the flow of combat. You could be around the strength level of a coc Trainer and do this with no problem.

Edit: You also have to think of the legal consequence if you were to physically crush an individual's hand in a combat situation.

The Terminator franchise includes many books, comics, and films / TV shows. In which, in the aggregate, the technical features of all robots from this "universe" are described quite extensively (although sometimes contradictory). in these sources it is mentioned that T-800 engines developed a force of 200 kg per square cm ... If you don’t bother too much with calculating the area of the gripper handles under the fingers during closing (and some other moments) given their circular cross section and circular cross section of falanges, using the testimony of various dynamometers and calibrations of gripper, we can take, to a first approximation, that the average force of a person’s finger when closing CoC-4 is about 40 kg per square cm  .. Although the actual effort of the fingers is very different, the index finger and the middle will give up to 80 percent of the total result ...

And there's s super easy tricks you can learn so that any person can squeeze your hand as hard as they want and you won't feel anything. Doesn't matter how strong they are.

I know what you mean. However it would be interesting trying to test this out with Nathan or someone of similar strength.
