Nail bending Personal Best!

In John Brookfields Grip Masters Manual, he talks about bending entire boxes of 60D’s in one sitting. John was bending 50Lbs boxes, and he uses a unique grip. John just grabs the ends of the nail and presses down to bend it.

This work out gave me an even stronger respect for John and his truly freakish levels of strength and endurance.

I took 200 60D nails and put them in a pile. I used a click counter for each nail i bent to keep a good count. I started the clock right before my first bend and let it run until i hit my goal number. 150 60D’s bent in 1 hour and 15 minutes. I used Iron Mind Cordura hand pads and the double under grip.

Here is the break down for bends per 25 nails-

First 25: 10 minutes, 15 seconds. 50: 21 minutes, 18 seconds. 75: 31 minutes, 40 seconds. 100: 42 minutes, 47 seconds. 125: 58 minutes, 42 seconds. 150: 1 hour, 15 minutes, 13 second
Some things i have learned-
-If you start to get a blister, you should stop there for the day.
-Use leather pads if possible. i believe i would have made it to 200 if i had leather to use.
-Move at a good pace, but don’t comprimise your technique to speed up, it will cost you in the long run.
