TORQUE

Buy steel stock below!

TORQUE! is all about truly testing our wrists and hands. There are many different mountains, but how you attempt the mountain is the challenge. The view at the top is the same, but the feeling inside is different.

Rules for TORQUE! Unbraced snap

1. The usual unbraced rules apply, except you obviously have to bend the bar backwards. You keep going back and forth till the bar snaps.
2. You can have some normal insulating tape on your thumbs for protection, to stop the heat of the nail/bar burning them – the bar can get hot.
3. As with the normal unbraced rules your hands on the ends of the bar can touch your chest, waist, neck or chin area. Your hands should not intentionally touch anything below waist height.
4. Wraps for protection will be the World of Grip 10" x 4" suede wrap on each side of the bar. You can have two wraps on each side if you wish.
5. No gloves are allowed. No wrapping or taping of any part of wrist, and hands is allowed.
6. Only chalk is allowed.
7. Time limit = 10 mins

All bending claims should be accompanied with a video (Youtube, sent to me, etc) unless it was done in a ratified contest, under these rules, or in front of me. This video should show the bar tag, and the length and width of the bar using a ruler, and a calliper (digital), prior to the start of the bend.
