Yeah I give limp handshakes, to people that I don't respect while staring them in the eyes.

I used to have a good firm handshake. However, after being stabbed through the hand in a prison riot, I've lost a good bit of feeling and nerve damage to my ring and pinky finger. The only real hand strength I have is in the index and middle finger. So while I try to give as firm a handshake as I can, the bottom of my hand usually curls up. And while some people may try to give a crank on my hand, I don't really feel it. And its quite possible that during that handshake, when you're showing your dominance, that you just broke bones in those last 2 fingers. I will figure it out in a day or 2 when my hand starts to swell or turn colors. But it has nothing to do with what kind of man I am.

Have you checked out her website? It's got like 200 'how-to' videos on it...too bad it's like 8 bucks a month and she now is looking kinda like a grandma.

I feel the need to acknowledge this post, even though I really have nothing to say about it. Except maybe to ask why you let people shake your damaged hand?

Yes, this is the anomaly. Offer your left hand and say, "My right hand has been injured." I've had to do this before.

But again this is the anomaly. Most limp wristed handshakers are just pansy ass motherfuckers.

Because I'm right handed? And its not that bad really until I get one of those over compensating jerk offs that feel the need to express their dominance over me. If they push the damaged fingers into the good ones, I can feel that. Then I take my left hand and poke the bastard in the eye. But that's only happened once. My hand is broke and so is his freakin eye. Other than that one time, its not really been a problem. I was just saying if we ever met, ya'll might think I have a weak or limp handshake.

I firmly shook the front desk girl's hand when I walked into the gym.

She will be missed by her remaining family.

I am truly sorry.

If T-Nation told you to jump off a bridge, would you do it? Actually, don't answer that. Last thing we need is the cops knocking on your door to put you on sui watch.

That is only valid if you are putting it in her pooper while she's making you a sammich and you are yelling "Hulk Smash!".

Let's be honest, that's probably going to be a sloppily made sandwich.

Probably not going to be a great handshake, either.

Yeah, I could see that getting awkward real fast at a job interview or other formal business setting.

You have to be big, black, bald and have an actual opinion for that to happen.

How can I improve my handshake?

FWIW, I'm considered strong for my size, but I am genetically screwed by my parents and their long bony finger genes.

I don't like to eat food either. I stick mostly to pictures of food that I snip out of magazines and newspapers. (newspaper is my fav. dissolves easier)
