This workout is a little different. Toward the end of the series, Baki, in a display of his grip strength, demonstrates his ability to close his fist entirely around a whole newspaper page. You couldn’t see the paper at all. What’s the big deal, right? If you have ever tried to do this, it is extremely difficult. The method is a little more than that, though. You take a page of a news paper–just one page–and lay it flat on a table. Then, you place your hand in the center of the table and, using just the fingers on one hand, crumple the paper up and close your fist around it as hard as you can. After that, switch hands.
|These are the pages where Baki demonstrates this amazing skill.|
Repeat this until the entire newspaper is gone, or until you can no longer continue. But that’s not all…
