How to Get Started with Feats of Strength
How Beginners Should Start with Feats of Strength
Ya know what I would say if you asked me what to start with for feats of strength?
Believe it or not, I’d say Card Tearing.
There’s several reasons…
1. Cards are readily available.
You can get them at just about every store you go into.
2. Cards are very affordable.
When you’re starting out, you can go to the Dollar stores and pick up sometimes two packs for just $1.
3. Cards take up very little room.
Keep a couple decks in a spare drawer for when you are ready to tear.
4. Cards are easy to take with you to the gym.
Throw a deck in your pocket or gym bag, and hit it once you get warmed up.
5. Natural Progression Model.
You can start out with 1/4 of a deck and practice until you get it. Then, just add a few cards to the deck to increase the challenge ever so slightly. Just like with weight lifting.
But the best reason to make the first feat of strength you try is that tearing cards gets you used to creating force with your hands.
You can practice card tearing for a few weeks and before you know it your hands are stronger, thicker, and tougher.
And of course, once you master card tearing, then it is an easy step to the next feat, and your grip is strong, your joints are used to applying pressure, and it makes learning something like nail or horseshoe bending a much easier transition.
If Feats of Strength are something you’ve always wanted to try, my suggestion is to start with Card Tearing. And if you want to learn how to do it, I’ve got the perfect resource for you.
