Paper tearing - Help

Lately, I've been receiving all sorts of junk mail, mainly advertising for Halloween stuff and all of this usually ends up in the garbage untouched. But a week or so ago, I've decided to do something with all the useless mail I'm getting, tear it apart to strengthen my grip and wrists (plus it looks cool at parties [^]).

But now, how do I go about this? Can I just wiggle back in forth the paper until it breaks and then tear it, or do I have to tear it in one shot? Can I just tear some paper 3 days a week? Everyday?

My goal is not to tear a pack of cards or a phone book (as of now), it is only to give my grip a good workout, so no need to replicate neither of these situations.

    I have loads of magazines that I play around with, so I'd say that the majority of my tearing is pretty hard since I fold them if it gets too easy. My hands were crying for mercy yesterday, and I plan on making them cry tonight too

    Thanks for the newspaper tip too, it'll help if I decide to go after the deck of cards.

    i find it easiest to stagger the magazine/ paper so that the top page is about an inch higher than the bottom then when you tear it makes a start on each page individualy

    Does anyone know how long it normally takes to be allowed access on that board? I joined a few days ago and still can't access the board.
    If you join there guys use your MT names so we can know who each other is.

    Wannagrip(the mod) is very busy at times, so it could take a week. Im a member there and post my wrist curl workout in the Workout Reports and Training Routines forum. If your into grip you should check it out. Many Certified Captains Of Crush post there. By the way i post under David Fralick on the grip board.

    Thanks guys! I've already mailed the administrator of the grip board but I guess there was no need too.
    Welcome to MT Scarkarn! I'll look out for your posts on the grip board.

    Yea the grip board can be hard on people, but thay know a lot about grip. So if your into grip you will fit in. I dont post much, mostly read unless wrist curls come up then ill post on that.
