Take it from me. I used to do a ton of grip work for armwrestling stuff, that is a CRAZY strong pinch

That's amazing. I don't think I can even get a fingertip on 6.

Exactly - you've got some monstrous hands.

I've got to try this.

EDITED:

I just went down into my basement where I have a squat rack and some weights ( but I don't train there much anymore ). Anyway, I could do 5 relatively easily ( even though I'm pretty tired from ME benching earlier today ), but URG I don't have 6 10 pound plates.

I've done 5 when I was training for strongman - 6 is just nuts.

I know there are abunch of you that could do this if you tried.. insane grip strength is relative. If your hand can span the plates...it's only a matter of time before you can pinch 5 to 6. My advice would be to go straight to it without a warmup. IF you don't you could fatigue out fast! I have great crushing grip strength but pinch is hard for me..even though I did the dimes my overall pinch strength sucks. C'mon guys. let's do a pinch challenge and see how many WBB'ers can get 5-6 dimes!

I think my hand could span 7 pretty easily.

Seriously, I'm going to work on this. Maybe I'm under estimating how thick 7 would be, but 5 was easy, no chalk or anything. I've been doing grip training on my deadlift workout, my next workout this is what I'm going to work.

5 is a peach man.. i've done five with 3 fingers now. for reps with both hands and can exchange them once picked up from one hand to another..did it today at work. get 6 man.. then smoke 7. Chalk up the plates and give it a run brutha! if you've got massive hands you've got to check out gripboard.com. Awesome bunch over there too.

You should be the one Ox. Your hands have got to be huge as tall as you are.

Here's my question. Ox is 6'8 and more than likely has hands to match his frame. Well, what about guys who are significantly taller than him, and probably have even bigger hands? Shouldn't they be able to pinch 6 plates with relative ease provided there has been some grip training in place? Think Yao Ming...with some grip training, wouldn't/shouldn't he be able to pinch more plates than the average person?


Either way, bud, that was seriously impressive!

I would think so yeah. But it seems most tall people tend not to get into strength training ( I suspect because long limbs results in poor leverages that can be discouraging some times ).

Right on, man. That does seem to be the norm. I just thought it was interesting how you thought that your hand could probably span 7 plates, ya know, what could some of those really freakishly tall guys span? Pretty interesting.

I don't if my hands are huge, but I read this on wikipedia...

The average length of an adult male hand is 189 mm. The average hand breadth for adult males is 84 mm.

Using this to measure...

My hand is:
length is 23 cm, which puts me well above the 99th percentile.
breadth is 10 cm, which puts me just at the 99th percentile.
circumference is 26.5 cm, well above the 99th percentile.

OK, I guess I do have huge hands.

How do you keep the middle plates from slipping out? i have no trouble whatsoever getting my hands around 4 but the middle slipped out. i didnt bother 5 or 6 b/c i was dishearted lol.

Well that's why it's called pinch grip "strength" - you actually have to grip it harder to keep the plates in there...;)

By pinching them. That's what makes it hard.

The 10 pound plates at my Monday night gym are different than the ones in the OP's video. They're thick and have a ridge around the outside of the plates. I need to find some like in the video.

Great job on the 6 dimes! Have you ever done the blob or hub lifts. I have tiny hands which don't work too well with the blob, but can do the dimes and the hub lifts...which are pretty fun and give a good grip workout. Keep working on 'em...good video.

guess i should of actually tried squeezing lol....i was in a hurry and there were 4 sitting there so i walked by and tried and didnt put much effort into it...but, im pretty sure i can get 4 or 5....just have to actually work on it though lol. 6 is insane bro!

the plates can be chalked but have to be smooth sides out to make the lift count according to grip guys..

I did the 6 plate again twice tonight with my right hand and once with my left but barely missed lockout..i want to be the first to do a double 6 plate deadlift and the first to do it with both hands. anyone else tried this yet? the cap standard 10lb plates work great for it.

just measured my hands... 4 fingers touching measure a little over 4 inches apart... from the base of my palm to the end of my middle finger my hand is 8 1/2" long. spanned out.. from my thumb to the end of my pinkie my hand is 10 1/4" wide.

so my hands are roughly the same size as ox's :D and i'm 6' tall.. ox you're what.. 6'8" i think? :eek:
