    Watch my Strong Thumb Challenge video. Originally posted 5 years ago under the I have moved my videos to

    Can you double fold imported beer bottle caps?

    Domestic beer caps, such as Coors, are thinner and easier to fold for beginners…

  2. Fred B Natural Says:

    I can rip phone books in half also. That is a trick requiring some strength, but is mostly technique. The same might be said about cap double folding.

  3. Fred B Natural Says:

    I’m into body building on my Bowflex XTLU. Can do many of the exercises with 410 pounds (maximum) resistance. However I was able to double-fold 2 Guinness caps simultaneously, one in each hand when I was in my 30’s. That’s correct. I was able to single fold bottle caps with two fingers AND double fold bottle caps with only THREE fingers on one hand! And that was before I started body building on the Bowflex.

    Tough little Guy (150 lbs. 3 days ago) 156 lbs. today! 60 years old and I can still fold ’em!
