David Horne's world record attempt

Post by peter yates » Thu Jul 26, 2018 2:08 pm

This weekend at the UK Strongest Man competition, Grip Master and all round Strongman,David Horne will attempt a world record bar bend. David will attempt to bend three bars in succession each 24" x 16mm and rated at 173kg.Certainly a tremendous feat of hand,wrist and whole body strength,but David has all in abundance. I am sure all members will join me in wishing David the very best in his attempt and that he will emerge victorious.
Regards,Peter.
Peter Yates

If anyone can do it, then David Horne can, he is one exceptional guy and in my view one of the greatest grip strength artists of all time, good luck mate. David Gentle still trying to get the stopper off my salad cream bottle...Rose !!!!!!!!!!!.

P.S to Steve aka Mobster, note some guy is flogging off "our" early issues of Muscle Mob on EBay/Mus for twenty quid an issue or more, maybe we kept the price too low???David Gentle
