The secret is deceiptively simple...

Simply conceal your bottom thumb into your top fist... This will allow your fists to remain together no matter how hard someone strikes them.

This should only be performed once though, as it largely relies on the element of novelty and surprise... Repeating the trick will most likely end up revealing the secret.

    Oh that's impressive...so you cheat :\ you hold your thumb so he can't move you but when he is being honest and doesn't cheat you can move his hand with ease. How about you work out a little and eat right? Most of the ladies out there can hold there own if they apply themselves and don't conform to stereotypes.

    how about if someone hits the hand holding your thumb with such impact that it breaks your thumb?  Not hard as it only takes about 20lbs of pressure to break your thumb, and the average person can throw a punch with 10 times that much force.

    BEST COMMENT EVER. It should even be a featured comment!

    I must admit, for a while I was tempted to wholeheartedly agree with your, "best comment ever" statement. In fact, I had even considered using all caps as you had done, so powerfully, I might add. But, I instead came to the realization that pressing the shift key would be too much effort and I wasn't going to push it, nor myself. Last time I tried such a power move I got a nose bleed and had to miss a few meals, which partially deflated the pair-shape/ girlish figure that I've been working on my entire life. Because that's how we roll here in the N Am. Keeping it real (real easy that is). Now, I'm going to go lay down with the fan pointed at me. Good day.

    Lots and lots of protein. Oatmeal and boiled chicken breasts with no salt, also some egg whites.

    I think your title is misleading, because you can also "outstrength" a woman this way. Also, you are not really outstrengthing, but "tricking". This is a trick, not a feat of strength. I would hate for someone to stumble upon this thinking they have found a way to be stronger, only to learn that they are creating the potential to anger someone once he realizes he's been tricked. I've been there, and it wasn't pretty. Anyway, I do like the "trick". But if I were to try this, I would say something like, "Hey, would you like to see a neat trick?". This way, you won't anger anyone.

    Any trick has got to be sold. Of course tou are right, there is a strong element of misdirection to this, but that's the name of the game...

    I guess... I just feel uncomfortable when someone is made to look foolish. Oh well.

    So it's not really an instructable on how to "outstrength" (note: this isn't an actual word) any man. It's a an instructable on how to trick a dumb person. Cool.
