    Daniel Reinard gets my vote. If I hung from one arm for more than a couple seconds, my arm would rip clean off my body! Great job everyone and great challenge Jedder!

    Respect to everyone who completed this feat. Daniel Reinard’s hang with one arm was a very close second to Darrin Shallman in my book. Fingerwalking a 22 lb hammer (even only halfway) after he allready did an 8 lb was very impressive to me. Great job Darrin…my vote goes to you.

    Very tough to pick a winner this week. All videos were top notch! Based on creativity I’m going to go with Mike Rinderle as the winner followed very closely by Daniel Reinard. Also, huge props go out to Gene Pires for gutting it out and coming up with a very strong finish to the challenge. Great job by all.

  13. David Wigren Says:

    My vote goes to Pitt. Two 10 lbs sledges at the same time, impressive!

  14. Daniel Reinard Says:

    St-Onge! Back to back walks for that forearm pump. Great job by all! And great addition to my grip strength routine, thanks Jedd.
