“I’m Not Sures” and More!
My name is Adam Glass, and I will teach you how to build an unbreakable grip. I hold 13 world records in grip strength and have some of the world’s strongest hands. As a strongman performer, I’ve demolished metal spikes, ripped thousands of decks of cards, and scrolled miles of steel bars and horseshoes. I have made the impossible a reality by pushing my body past its perceived limit in the modern world.
I’ve trained thousands of people to develop stronger, healthier hands over the years, including bodybuilders, powerlifters, weightlifters, MMA fighters, rock climbers, hockey players, and musicians.
