I'm a couple of months behind the curve here but Nibs: why are you training in lederhosen?

These things really should be recorded as total weight not just +kg. The +kg is interesting but i am betting Dai is only hanging 85-90kg off the holds and plenty of people could beat it.

Agreed. Doesn't seem all that impressive to me, but I've never tried to hang the 6 mm's.

If he weighs 58kg like Nibs posted on the last page of this thread that's a total of 90kg.

I'm more shocked with the fact he weighs 58kg...

Disagree, this isn't world strongest man, it's closer to weightlifting with lots and lots of different classes.  The percentage of one's bodyweight that one is adding is the impressive thing not the total weight, as this is what has bearing on climbing ability.

It would be impressive if someone who weighed 120kg could hang of the 6mm micros but less directly related to climbing.

Maybe my impressive-o-meter is off? The 6mm micros felt tiny to me though. Hanging 155% bodyweight on those is more impressive to me than his one-armed 128% bodyweight hang on the bottom outer BM2k edge.

I dont agree. Its my understanding that as the muscle groups used in max hangs i.e.the forearms are not large that the maximum amount they can support is far more limited than big compound exercises. If the maximum limit for fingers on a 6mm edge is say 100kg then how much you weigh effects how much extra you can add.
Pretty sure Tom and Olly say there is a max weight fingers can hold in a podcast.

So as a climber you'd be just as impressed by a 90kg climber hanging the 6mm holds for four seconds with no added weight as you are by Dai being half way to being able to hang them one armed?

From videos/pictures I just expected him to be a heavier chap

Two different things but i suggest a 90kg climber hanging of them is more difficult than what Dai is doing now.
Obviously being able to pull way more than his body weight once climbing is massively beneficial for climbing but i am just talking about feats of strength here and 90kg is 90kg whether its your own body weight or a combination of weight.

 :agree: This is Legendary Feats of Strength, we want fat blokes ripping phone books in half and pulling tractors along.

He's only 5'5"

Strongly psyched up by the big small man, I put up a couple of nice, freshly made 5 mm edges. I immediately felt the inebriating perfume of the mid '90s when I lived on fingerboarding, and it's been gorgeous to feel once again the pain of those crimps.
As for Koyamada's efforts, I am not exactly looking forward to follow him on this treacherous path... I did a couple of good solid hangs with 10 kg on, and while I felt fine, it was nonetheless painful. Will try again with fresher skin but adding up to 32 kg to oneself goes beyond my imagination.

Very impressive. The anorexic legs are strong in this one.

Yes, impressive, but for me, a solid YYFY. Perhaps even a legendary feat of weakness. Undoubtedly cool from a climbing perspective.

The other post is however deeply uncool, in my opinion.

Kool-arm-ada goes out there, does the business, and inspires. He doesn't show off what he gets for doing nothing with his skills.

Impressive as this skill looks, I think you can get better engagement when doing levers on an edge. The distribution of mass, and the resultant forces can actually make hanging the edge easier.

It would be really interesting to see how he fairs doing straight hangs or pull ups on the 6mm, or front lever pull ups on a bar.

I think these look better:

Give me a 5 mm edge and a front lever and I will lift the world.

Cool stuff indeed. I would like to try, but I reckon that without a gym mat under my spine it would feel probably around E7. On a side note, why should I try something that I know I can do?
 ;D ;D ;D
Just kidding. You gotta love Louis.
