What Feat of Strength Should You Try First?
Which Feat Should You Start With First?
I’m often asked what is the best feat of strength to start with.
I think card tearing is the best way to get started with feats of strength.
Not bending nails, not tearing phone books, and not horseshoes.
There’s three reasons why I suggest you start out with tearing cards.
Why You Should Start With Card Tearing Before Anything Else
1) Cards are Cheap
Cheaper end cards, the kind that are perfect for beginners, cost only $1 at Dollar General, Dollar Tree, and similar stores. Sometimes they’re even cheaper than that!
2) No Other Gear Required
With nail bending and many other feats, you need wraps, cutters, rubber bands, etc. With card tearing, you don’t need any of that. You just take the card out of the box and start tearing.
3) Perfect for Hand Conditioning
Although made of paper, tearing cards still requires appreciable tension in the hands. Cards allow you to get used to straining and putting for sustained pressure, repeatedly in order to get the job done.
Once you’re used to this, you’ll be ready for the stresses associated with nail bending, horseshoes, and braced bends as well.
If you want to get started with feats of strength, Card Tearing is your ticket.
And I’ve got the perfect resource for you, to help you get started right: Card Tearing ebook.
All the best in your training.
