    Ok I've been told on a couple of occasions that I have a "good" handshake. Well now, today I met some of my father's clients from Germany, a couple from Norway, and a two from Thailand.

    So the 4 men from Germany all almost broke my hand when they shook it :ugh:. Like, it was uncomfortable because their hand shake was so fucking strong.

    Now to the question, what constructs a good solid handshake? Is it just the person, or is it actual muscles or tendons? I honestly am not asking what kind of workout should I do to get a better handshake :mamoru: I was just stunned by how strong the guys from Germany hand shakes were. Granted they prolly had old man strength lol because they were all in their 50's+ besides 1 of them.

    Anyway, enlighten me

    since I started lifting, I get handshake comments at least once a week, always from women. I don't squeeze the shit out of their hands, just a solid, firm grip.

    most guys (at least my age) probably either pussyfoot around their hands, or try to break their fingers, neither of which make a good handshake.

    The bank Manager the other day came over to greet me in the bank, we shook hands and he squeezed it hard as hell. Like almost fucking with me, my hand cracked, he heard it to. I was kinda embarassed.

    I cannot stand when people handshake and squeeze as hard as they can trying to prove something. Firm handshake = good kung fu grip handshake = not so good.

    Yeah same here, it is usually from women, actually the last girl I met shook my hand and didn't let go because she started saying how I had such a good hand shake, and I laughed but she was serious she said it was an inside joke with her dad and now she is always conscious of handshakes lol

    hahahahahahha


    Yea I don't like that either.

    any reasonable person can point out what a "firm" handshake feels like and when someone trys too hard doing it.

    it's a dominance type of thing...

    usually when guys give each other a handjob they try their hardest to out grip one another... usually the pussy ends up going "ow"

    I've always had a firm handshake, but I'd always loosen it up when shaking a woman's hand. I was never too sure if it was acceptable to squeeze a woman's hand too

    haha i hate when that happens. When you just grab someone's hand and forget you are "shaking hands" and then afterwards you feel like a faggot cuz he prolly thinks you're a girl

    I shook some dude's hand the other day and it was a normal shake then randomly at the end he just tried to grip the hell out of my hand as I pulled away and it ended up being this strange double shake as I gripped back harder but with only the ends of my fingers that remained in his grip.

    That's the gayest thing I've ever written.

    Even worse! I hate it when you go to shake someone's hand and they get a good deep grip and you get stuck squeezing with the tips of your fingers cuz he was faster to the punch! :o Fucking hate it, makes you seem like a realy wimp :greddy:
