Dr Karl on Knuckle Cracking



  • same as jpad :)



  • 1: Vegemite - that does not look very nice - it looks like mold.

    2: I have noticed a big difference in my grip since cracking and no, i was never exceptionally weak. I think it is due to the tendons.

    3. ABC - yeh there is an american one too - if you go on itunes you will see some of their programmes that you can buy - us British get ripped off by their stupid prices. Like £1.89 a tv episode which is like $3.60.



  • Exactly jpad
    I could see an argument that a flexible crackers hand has less "grip strength" , however thats measured ??, but 4x??
    Non crackers would be able o crush skulls with 4x the grip



  • MasterCracker, when you do the hand/headstands, how long do you stay inverted?



  • wow i've never been able to do handstands!



  • Yeh - i once ran and did a front flip - jeez that hurt when i landed.



  • I do handstand or head stands for as long as feels right. Or until i fall. LoL.Maybe a couple of mins. doesn't always bring cracks but 1 is fun, 2 changes gravity on your spine 3 gets blood flowing + circulating. Headstand are easier than handstands. Great for building strength and balance.

    Bod8 use a clear wall to practice head/hand stands.
    I had to for a few months before I could balance myself.



  • interesting thanks mastercracker!



  • ABC = the Australian Broadcasting Commission. It's a TV channel here in Aus.

    Also, vegemite is great and I can't believe those of you who are so ignorant of other cultures and US-centric that you condemn a food before ever even tasting or experiencing it. There are culinary cultures apart from your own, you know.



  • Firstly Percush - it is just a sandwich filling - people can have their own feelings about it from wherever they are in the world. Just because you eat a specific filling does not mean it is a culture.

    Many countries are not centered around US food either and we are ignorant of other cultures. Just saying you don't like vegemite is like saying you don't like porsches because they have horrible backs etc.

    I mean you don't have too eat every cheese to know that you really hate it.



  • Blaze and bod8 are brits anyways
    I personally, as the American, have a huge pallet for cuisine of the world and am fascinated by the infinite possibilities of the easy access of ingredients from around the world and the fusion food they have created.
    indian, japanese, thai, spanish, italian, FRENCH, ethiopian, etc
    Percush you ever eat ethiopean?
    I highly recommend it if not, very vegetarian friendly also
    You usually use your hands , no utensils , if you want to keep it traditional that is.
    Percush how do you enjoy vegimite the most?
    On bread w margarine like your fellow aussie
    or do you have any other recommendations for it?
