You Want to Show Off Your Strength - Bend Nails

  1. 1. You Want to Show Off Your Strength - Bend Nails
  2. 2. If you can bend nails with your hands you would have apretty good way to show off your forearm strength.It’s one of those things that a lot of people would like to dobut do not know the technique or are just not strong enough.There are even some guys out there that are really strongbut can’t bend nails because they have neglected to workouttheir forearms.But, in this article we are going to talk about the techniqueof bending nails not about strength.
  3. 3. You have worked hard to develop killer forearm and gripstrength and now you want to find out how strong yourarms really are by bending a nail.There are more than one type of grip you can use to holdonto the nail, you may find one might be more comfortablefor you than the others.
  4. 4. These different grips are normally called the doubleoverhand, double underhand and the reverse.You should use a piece of leather or a heavy fabric ofsome type that you will wrap around each end of thenails that will give some cushion and will protect yourhands.There is the very real possibility you could do damage toyour hands so start off with easier stuff to bend at first toget used to it.
  5. 5. When you actually go to bend a nail, the technique youwill use will require you to use your whole body not justyour arms.Place the end of the nail with the point in your hand thatwill not do the actual bending.Grab on to the other end of the nail with the other handclose in so your two hands are close together.Place the elbows into your sides for support and to makeit a somewhat easier to do, then you squeeze your handsreally hard.
  6. 6. At the same time you need to tense up your back andshoulder muscles which will assist your arms in doing thebend.You must lock your wrists to make your forearms as if it isone unit.Start bending the nail with your bending hand by puttingeverything you have into it.If what you are trying will not bend just move down tosomething that will be easier for you and practice once aweek.
  7. 7. Using this technique is not the only way to do it.Do a little research and you can find lots of information tohelp your technique.You must be careful with your hands because of the nails,but you will find that they will start to toughen up themore you do this.
