Comparing Your Forearm and Grip Strength

Comparing Your Forearm and Grip Strength
If you're a grip fanatic like me you will surely enjoy comparing yourself to la creme de la creme of the grip strength world. 


365 lbs (165.5 kg) of pressure are required to fully close the monster... with one-hand. The average guy has a grip strength of 112 pounds. The No. 4 Captains of Crush Gripper was invented as a joke, an impossible feat. It was and still is. Since only 5 people on earth have closed the monster gripper to date.
Official list of those certified as closing the No. 4 Captains of Crush Gripper

1998
Joe Kinney

2003
Nathan Holle
David Morton

2004
Tommy Heslep
Magnus Samuelsson


Interesting fact: 4 out of the 5 Captain of Crush No. 4 tamers are pure grip specialists and 3 of them are below 200 pounds.


Adriane Blewitt: ONLY woman to ever close the Captains of Crush No. 2 Gripper (195 lbs of pressure to close)


------------------------------------------


Rolling Thunder
Men's World Record
May 5, 2012                      Mark Felix                           323.5 lb.
January 18, 2008              Mark Felix                           301 lb.
August 2006                      Laine Snook                       274.2 lb.
June 2003                         Andrus Murumets               267 lb.
June 2003                         Magnus Samuelsson          262 lb.
June 2001                         Jan Bartl                              258.5 lb.*(left handed)
May 2000                          Jan Bartl                              265.4 lb.
Women's World Record

September 22, 2012         Ludmila Gaiduchenko           169.84 lb.
May 26, 2012                   Jaana Tanner                        152.35 lb.
January 28, 2012             Jaana Tanner                        146.85 lb.
April 7, 2007                     Elizabeth Horne                     144.12 lb.
July, 2002                         Becca Swanson                     135 lb.
 
Here are the three benchmarks lifts for the Rolling Thunder.
average    accomplished    world-class
 125 lb.          185 lb.                 250 lb.


Bottom line: When you can pull at least 250 lbs or so on the Rolling Thunder you've got a world-class grip.

Only three men have ever officially closed the No. 3 Captains of Crush® Gripper, or beyond, plus held the world record in the Rolling Thunder®: Andrus Murumets, Laine Snook and Magnus Samuelsson.  Mark Felix said he is unable to close CoC grippers No. 3 because his hands are too big (11 inches reach from thumb pinky).

Interesting fact:  Unlike the Captain of Crush, there is no pure grip specialist among the Rolling Thunder Hall Of Fame.  All the Rolling Thunder recordmen are high-level 300-pound strongman competitors.  And the ladies are all strongest woman competitors.

Consider closing at least the No. 3 Captains of Crush® Gripper and lifting at least 250 pounds on the Rolling Thunder® as defining the threshold for truly world-class grip strength.

--------------------------------------

Wow!  I still got a lot of work to do.  Big numbers = Big challenge!  This will keep me busy in the gym and at home. 

Don't despair.  On more than 7 billions people the gentlemen (and ladies) mentionned above are the world elite, la creme de la creme of grip strength.  And they got the numbers to show it!  They are the people you should look up to.

Aim for the moon and maybe you will catch a star.

GREATEST COMBAT SPORTS PROMOTERS

GREATEST COMBAT SPORTS PROMOTERS


Dana White ranks the best promoters of all time (P.T. Barnum, Vince McMahon, Don King, Bob Arum, him last), and give a special place to Mama Kardashian / Kris Jenner.

“That’s a tough one, man. I think if you look at the fact that people still know who the (expletive) PT Barnum is, you’d have to go with PT Barnum as No. 1. Um, I’d probably put Vince No. 2. Vince and Don are both up there in age. Vince is still in there, (expletive) doing his thing, cutting huge major deals. I would put Don King No. 3. Who else did you have? You’d have to put Arum in there, too. You have to put Arum in there. And if I had to be on there, I’d put me last.”

"I have no idea. I don't think I'd be someone who would make that decision. I think there are a lot of great promoters. People know who Barnum is, Vince McMahon has been around a long time. Don King. Mama Kardashian, if she isn't the greatest promoter of all time, I don't know who is. The show is about nothing and her daughters are some of the most famous people on earth and are making millions. I don't think you could count her out. I'm very proud of what we've been able to do and we've done things that people have never done before, things even boxing couldn't do in its heyday. I don't think about who's the greatest promoter of all time."


I would put bodybuilding huckster Joe Weider in this list too.  He and his brother Ben single handedly created and ruled modern bodybuilding for several decades.

I'm going with todays individual sports. I'm basically asking who promotes their sport better in respect to innovation, marketing, etc
Don King

Dr Squat Fred Hatfield vs Tom Platz




Dr Squat Fred Hatfield vs Tom Platz Squat Challenge

In 1993, Tom Platz - the bodybuilder with the freakiest legs of all time - and "Mr. Squat" Fred Hatfield - the first guy to ever squat 1,000 pounds - goes head-to-head in a Squat contest.  The ultimate clash of titans!

1993
Squat Dream Match
FRED HATFIELD  vs    TOM PLATZ
5'6"                        5'8"
  198 lbs                    198 lbs
51 years old            38 years old
Powerlifter               Bodybuilder
* Don't think for one second that Fred Hatfield was past his prime at age 51.  At 45 years old, Fred Hatfield set a squat world record by lifting 1014 pounds in the 110 kg weight class. 
* Tom Platz was the 1981 Mr. Olympia 3rd. 


With his much bigger legs, Tom Platz managed to squat 765 pounds in the one-rep max squat.  However world class powerlifter Fred Hatfield defeated him with a 855 pounds squat.

In the max reps squat, with a colossal weight of 525 pounds (495-525 lbs depending of the source), tree-trunks legged bodybuilder Tom Platz managed to do 23 ass-to-floor reps with relative ease.  The powerful Hatfield "only" managed to squeeze 11 reps.

Tom Platz: 23 Reps @ ~ 525lb / 238kg Squat



Tom Platz 23 rep squat extravaganza during a competition with Fred Hatfield (Dr. Squat) at FIBO in Germany around 1993 - At which time Fred Hatfield may have been 51 years of age - awesome retention of fitness and drive.

There are several different versions of the event:

"The Golden Eagle (Tom Platz) got beat soundly (600 to 840) in maximum weight lifted. Both men weighed in at 198 pounds."

"On the flip side, when it came time for the reps contest, Dr.Squat got his butt whipped. The Golden Eagle performed 23 reps with 525 pounds to Dr.Squat's 11 reps."

And the exact numbers may never be known - except for the 23 reps seen here.

When these videos first appeared many years back, 500lb was always quoted. But now the range varies dependant upon source e.g. 505lb, 525lb, 539lb, even 590lb.

Similarly where the opening quote says:
(1) Tom Platz went down 600lb to Fred Hatfields 840lb max squat. It has been stated elsewhere that it was in fact 765lb to 855lb.
(2) Where it states Fred Hatfield stopped at 11 reps in the lighter squats, the number discussed reaches 13.

Tom Platz legs

TOM PLATZ LEGS


For those like me who believed that Tom Platz's legs were naturally huge. 
Think again.


Tom Platz trademark has always been his freaky huge and developed legs.  His legs are so freaky big that it look like a photoshop work!  He was appropriately nicknamed "Quadzilla".
"The God Of Legs" Tom Platz is also known as a God of the Squat lift. 
His leg training was all about high intensity, hig reps, and high weights.

Tom Platz dwafing Lou Ferrigno
not in height but in leg development.

"Platz became famous for his remarkable leg development. He developed a high intensity, high volume method of leg training, which led to his unparalleled size and definition for his time. Regardless of what was found lacking elsewhere, it is still widely claimed in bodybuilding circles that Platz holds the mark for the best legs in bodybuilding of his time and some of the best legs in bodybuilding ever. Flex readers agree: In a "best bodyparts of the 20th century" poll, Platz was deemed to have the best quads and hamstrings of all time." wiki


TOM PLATZ measurements
3rd in the 1981 Mr.Olympia
Height: 5'8"
Weight: 230 lbs
Leg size: 31"


Tom Platz squatting ass-to-floor deep.
The only way to go!





Tom Platz squatted 225 pounds for more than 100 reps in 10 minutes.
350 pounds for 52 reps

Squat 405 pounds for 30+ reps
Squat 600 pounds for 15 reps
635 pounds for 8 reps
Only did Squat twice a month.  Once every 14 days!
Squat 500 pounds for 23 reps
Squat 765 pounds one-rep max


TOM PLATZ SQUAT TRAINING

Frequency- 2 sessions a month
Once a month 405 pounds for 30+ reps
Once a month 600 for 15 reps

Workout-
135 for 10 reps
225 for 10 reps
315 for 10 reps
405 for 10 reps
405 for 30+  reps or 600 for 15 reps



Tom Platz 500lb 227.5kg squat for 23 reps  


An unbelievable feat of strength for such a "small" man. He does 23 deep squat reps with 500 pounds easily!!!


plus cycling 20 miles back home...

That's the other version of Tom Platz leg training routine.


In the Joe Weider and Bill Reynolds 's book "The Weider System of Bodybuilding", Tom Platz was billed as doing 20 reps Squat with 600 pounds (273 kg) and 10 reps with 700 pounds (318 kg).But just like in pro wrestling, Weider was notorious for exaggerating the exploits of his bodybuilders to make them look like superheros.
