Okay, continuing on from yesterday’s card tearing glory.
It had been a while since I had tried to tear a phone book in half. Maybe four or five months.
One of the nice things about hand strength is that once you’ve built a strong foundation, it doesn’t fade away like a lift like the bench press might, should you take some time off.
Hands are not quite as subject to the “use it or lose it” rule I see in so many of my other lifts.
Anyway, this book is about 2.5″ thick. It’s not the cleanest tear, but it went pretty easily.
