Levering The Gama Club

Posted on Tuesday, July 12th, 2016 by John Wood

To my knowledge, I am the only man in the world to accomplish this feat: a picture perfect to-the-nose-and-back lever of the Gama Club. The “Gama Club” is a modern representation of the trophy from traditional Indian wrestling called a Gurz, which can be seen here. No idea about the original, but the ‘Gama Club’ pictured above weighs 32 pounds with a 1-1/2 inch thick handle.

It’s a little shorter than a regulation sledge hammer but a lot heavier. Like I said, a lot of strong people have attempted to do this but no one so far has been able to… I think the Hammer Man would be proud.
