    Good Job, Brian ! Congratualtions! You've given me a new standard to aspire to. :D

    Yeah, I agree Peter, when I originally made the submission, I did infact state,"must hold for at least 10 seconds," but for some reasons they didn't include it?

    Impressive effort Darryl. I got to 17kg (37.5pounds) but I'd like to try with the larger weights (ie 10kg) - I've only got dumbell weights so a tower of 1 and 2.5kg weights makes it tricky to balance and hold at the same time.

    I like that you've taken the effort to prove the weight.

    Criteria should state "hold for at least 10 seconds"

    maybe I'll do this on a rola with 30 lbs or so for the longest time while juggling in the other hand. Darryl you might of made me think of 50 ideas from this.

    I think that this is finger tip strength more than just raw power. I bench around 260 the most I did was 300 with a spotter but there could be some puny kid out there with fat fingers who could hold 100 lbs who knows

    How did the 50 lbs go? After I did the 44 lbs - I dropped the weights on my foot, lol. I suspect the weight-lifters will love this category. ;)
