Adam Glass (with Brad Nelson)
My name is Adam Glass, and I am the man who is going to teach you to build an indomitable grip. I hold 13 world records in grip strength and have some of the strongest hands in the entire world. As a performing strongman, I have destroyed metal spikes, torn thousands of decks of cards, scrolled miles of steel bars and horseshoes. I have made the impossible a reality by developing my body past the modern worlds perceived limit.
Over the years, I have trained thousands of people to develop stronger, healthier hands: bodybuilders, powerlifters, weightlifters, mixed martial artists, rock climbers, hockey players, musicians; the list goes on and on. Every time I share the missing link of grip strength with someone, his or her performance improves. What does that mean? It means I can help YOU realize your potential!
