My sister in law is a OT for a health firm and she had this thing called a Hand Dynamometer.

well my left hand tested 101 kg of force and my right tested 115 kg

The goal is 150kg of crushing grip strength by this time next year.

Then on to farmers walk with real weight instead of small loads of 200 in each hand.

lol

funny thing is I train for one event called a sheef toss. I train using bails of hay that weigh about 25 lbs. I am now able to toss them about 22 feet up normal and if I really put effort I can hit about 23 to 24
