    After working up a messy tear of a pack of bikes I had to retire from card tearing. Bikes cost me 20 Rand!!! per pack that is about $2.50 US dollars! very very expensive hobby!

    So whats the deal with tearing cards? It makes you feel better psychologically or something like punching a bag when you angry? I don't understand can someone explain.

    Go try to tear a deck of cards in half.Its fucking hard to do. 99.9% of the people in the world cant do it.Its a feat of strength like steel bending.And its just fun.I Tore 30 trumps yesterday +3 cards better than my last attempt.One day it will be a full deck.Then more than a deck.

    No, that's what I rip the phone books for.
    I have found that tearing decks really 'isolates' for lack of a better word, the hands. During steel bending it's a lot of upper body. I'm still using my upper body when ripping decks, but it's more about my grip strength. Since ripping cards I have found my grip strength has really shot up. Remember when you look at all these things just ask yourself: Would I have to be stronger to do that? If the answer is 'yes' then it stands to reason that once you can do this is may be a good means of strength development.

    For me personally it would be merely to strengthen my wrist and hands.I had a seriously smashed up forearm 2 years ago and as well as missing some range of motion,i now have a fairly weak hand and wrist which i've worked hard and am still working hard to strengthen.I can close and hg250 a few times with my weak hand and do most of my deadlifting double overhand style so my hand is getting steadily stronger and the wrist is getting more stable,but i feel that card tearing and short bending would make very good"total forearm,wrist and hand"strength training as opposed to training just grip,wrist or forearms individually.
