Love the sport of strongman? Love Brian Shaw and Jujimufu? Well, if you love all of those things, then you’re in luck. In Jon “Jujimufu” Call’s latest YouTube video series, him and Tom Boyden invited 4x World’s Strongest Man Brian Shaw out to their garage gym to partake in some grip tests and frying pan bending antics.
From what we can tell, there will be four videos in this series. The first video was released a few days ago and it features Brian Shaw testing his grip strength and almost unofficially breaking a pinch grip world record, along with folding multiple frying pans, which include a spread of materials like aluminum, steel, and cast iron. We’re not going to spoil the video for you, but Shaw was able to handily fold multiple frying pans, and even break a couple.

Unfortunately we’re not mathematicians , and we can’t tell you exactly how much force it required to bend the above metals — and we know there are tricks to folding frying pans — but it was incredibly entertaining to watch Shaw manhandle these cooking tools.
We highly recommend checking out the whole video, but it is slightly longer. If you are most interested in the frying pan bending antics, then skip to about 16:00 minutes in.
Grip tests and professional strongman athletes are nothing new to Jujimufu’s YouTube channel. Throwback to January 2018 when Jujimufu and Boyden did Steinborn squats and brutal grip tests with Latvian strongman Martins Licis.

In October, Shaw took home second place at the World’s Ultimate Strongman competition and walked away with $35,000 USD. After walking away with third place at the 2018 World’s Strongest Man contest, it’s going to be interesting to see how he places at this year’s Arnold Sports Festival and World’s Strongest Man competition.
