just a device you hold in your hand to arms length-shoulder high.....then as you lower your arm you squeeze the two handles together on the device.  It measures your hand strength.  Nothing to worry about.

70 combined, yes. When you can beat the test with one arm, you know it is far too easy...  ::)

I only scored 39 for each hand and I passed, so nothing to worry about.

What's your point?
If people have a question regarding the grip test this thread will come up on a search, no need to have someone bring back this thread an other old ones to the front page for no reason.

that is what you squeeze. Im not a big guy by any means and I got 54/52 on it.


And I believe you need 75kg combined. You get 2 trys per hand.
