Who Else Wants to Tear Thick Phonebooks in Half with Ease?
I did. And so I got this DVD and with a little work I too was ripping through phonebooks like they were going out of style.
There is no one better to learn from then the Grandmaster Strongman? This isn’t some guy who “pops” phonebooks open, using a trick to make it easy. No he’s someone who can just grab a phonebook and by hand strength alone, tear it into too. This is just one feat of many that Dennis Rogers is capable of, and the one you’ll be learning all about in this amazing DVD. But just tearing a phonebook in two is too easy for him.

“I was lucky enough to witness Dennis Rogers demonstrate several feats of strength. The one that has stuck with me most vividly over the years was when he tore a Manhattan phone book in half the long way (book held vertically). This phonebook is about 3″ thick and is the granddaddy of all phone books. I turned on my video camera and kept it at my ready in pause mode, figuring that as soon as Dennis hit the stage, I would press the pause button to start recording, and capture the action. Dennis popped out of the crowd onto the stage with phone book in hand. I un-paused my camera as soon as he stepped on stage, and without hesitation, he went to town. In one clean, very quick motion, he tore the book in half like an ordinary person would tear a couple of pieces of paper in half.” -Steve Weiner, Professional Strongman

Let me just tell you my own story briefly. This was the first DVD I ever bought from Dennis Rogers. I started small with less then half inch phonebooks. Within a couple months I was tearing through many normal sized books. And my best ever phonebook tear was almost 3 1/2″. I’ll never forget shortly after I gained this ability I was at a friends house and he just kept handing my the books and I kept shredding them. By the end of the night the floor was covered in paper. All those skills I owe to Dennis Rogers and this DVD.
