    Does anybody know approximately how much crushing or pinching strength is required to crush/tear an average person's forearm?
    I'm gonna look in to it right now and post it in here if I find it.
    In the meantime, I would appreciate it f anyone who knows can tell me.
    Thanx.

    No they tested a sample of over 1000 people of all ages, race, and genders before they came to that figure. :icon_twis

    Stick with small children at first, work your way up and you'll be snapping appendages in no time.

    Wait, that might be illegal in some places so be careful.

    Well, I'm a CoC, and I'm about as close to being able to bend a barbell in half as I am to crush somebodies forearm.

    Awful! I can break 2 35's off the ground, but can't lock them out all the way. I can lift a 45lb block weight which is pretty good though.

    bending is a 5.5" g5 bolt. Nothing special, but it could be much, much worse.

    Since (oddly), no one has asked this yet, why do you want to damage someone's forearm so badly? I'm not begrudging your right to do so, but I am very curious as to who pissed you off and how.

    Also, what is your plan of attack? Perhaps you could reach for a friendly handshake with your enemy. Maintain eye contact so the perp doesn't notice as you slip the shake and slide your hand up past their wrist, tearing the muscle clean away from the ulna. This should cause enough pain that you can easily work the top side of the forearm now. Grip it and rip it.

    Best of luck and be sure to let us know how it goes.

    He means one handed, a two handed pinch with 2 35's isn't anything to write home about.
