What's the most ridiculous grip feat?

Recommended Posts

Jedd picked the double, but that farmers walk is one of a kind as far as I know. Jesse Pinonen might be able to walk with them if he had access to two pair.

Yeah, Jedd was the other human I was referencing in the original post doing the double.

Assuming it was legit, Cancrusher inverted CoC 4 close comes to mind.

I think this CoC 3.5 CCS close by Jonathan Vogt is pretty ridiculous:

I'm seeing a lot of strong stuff, but not as much ridiculous stuff. I wanna see inch dumbbell farmers walks on rollerskates, picking up a blob with an oven mitt, stuff that challenges the body and imagination!

Gil, a good one of these ridiculous feats would be your clap during 45 lb hub transfer 👍

Good luck with that. You can’t get half these people to lift a stub let alone do some crazy stuff like that.

Don bending over 100 red nails is the crasiest bending feat.

Agreed.  This was crazy-difficult on so many levels.  At my best and most explosive with double -overhand and killing Reds, no way could I have come close to this.  One of the craziest and most impressive feats I’ve ever seen.

Thanks Carl! It was a fun feat to do.

Chris' garage is like a feat factory. He is always doing some wild stuff.

OK. Does this qualify as a ridiculous grip feat?

I would say no. That's a ridiculous mental feat.

I would say completing that 3000 foot El Capitan freestyle with no equipment would be the most impressive physical human feet I have ever seen.

So a ridiculous grip is not a factor? A grip so strong that you trust it enough to climb El Cap with no safety ropes?

I would say absolutely it is a grip feat to the umpteenth degree. Every single strength/physical endeavor takes mental strength, and this is it to the max.

I don't think necessarily that your grip has to be that strong though? It's more endurance, efficiency and mental strength. I havent tried so dont know for sure though 😄

The climb is not physically demanding, there are thousands of climbers who could do the physical portion if you had a magic safety net. The difficult part is doing the entire thing without getting nervous or panicking or slipping or any of the little mistakes that could lead to instant death.

I would agree no doubt that the free solo was a huge mental feat as well. But just because their is a huge mental aspect does not mean it is not still a grip feat done in a ridiculous manner. Take Don's 100 red bend. By nail 75 I am sure it took him a lot more mental toughness than it did physical strength. Bending has a huge mental aspect as well.

I'm pretty new to grip sport so I haven't seen too many crazy feats of strength but one thing I've been really impressed by was Odd Haugen's Inch lifts. Also, this is my first actual post so let me know if everything came out right

Rindo bending in his undies is most ridiculous. Wiggy caught tons of shit from Kim Wood when he bent that crowbar under his leg. That was pretty ridiculous. Tanner is pretty ridiculous. Based on how you refined it Gil I think you would more entertained by the old time strongmen guys bending weird stuff while being funny to really see some ridiculous gripping

That stuff is really great too, but we know that not many of the old time guys can replicate the harder grip feats (Inch, Fatman Blob, 2x45 plate pinch, #3 gripper close, etc) mainly because they don't need to do that for their shows.
