Insane Grip Strength! Circus Strongman Steve Stevens Rips Apart 3 Decks of Cards

Steve Stevens AKA Titan, shows incredible grip strength.

Strongman competitors are usually known for the functional approach to training. They lift awkward objects and perform the classic lifts as part of their preparation. But what strongman events lack in spectacle, circus strongman performers make up for.

Steve Stevens, also known by his stage name Titan, has the best of both worlds. He has legit skills in strongman events, but he also performs feats of strength you wouldn’t normally see in a strongman event.

Here we see Steve Stevens perform the single arm dumbbell press with strict form.

The video below showcases just how incredible his grip strength is for example. Take a look at the caption and video below to see Steve Stevens AKA Titan, rip apart three decks of cards.

Ladies and gentlemen! TEARING THREE DECKS OF CARDS AT THE SAME TIME!

After months of tearing double decks (108 cards) in around 18-20 seconds and then moving up to 130 cards for a few attempts I finally stepped up for my first successful attempt and the first person to match 19th century Circus Strongman Monte Saldos famous Three Deck Tear record of 162 cards!

This was messy probably the messiest card tear iv ever done, the cramp sets in very fast and it feels like 162 paper cuts happening at the same time in the hands! Now that I have done the feat I know what I have to practice and train to make this a lot more fluid and hopefully when it comes to attempting it again its a lot more tidy than this pile of mess you see here ?
