Iron Apple? Not so much.

So in Kung Fu, there are different "Iron" categories, in which the artists will strengthen one body part to the point where it's strong, and impenetrable, like iron. Iron palm, iron arm, iron crotch (yes, you read that correctly), etc. Now, Todd does practice a certain Iron Thing (one time, he was trying iron palm exercises but kept hitting the sand bag so hard it sent several fingers into numbness), but I cannot disclose this information. Anyways, in addition to that, he does have very strong hands. He also likes to horse around.

Observe the enemy, the Gala apple:

Now Todd claims this is possible mostly due to the correct and efficient application of pressure but I tried this and it didn't work:

Hmm, let's readjust. This apple isn't giving up just yet:

Let's try one more time. Especially since this was on my lunch break and I had to get back to the office:


It's really cool because just before it comes apart, you can hear the fibers in the apple giving way, like small little internal tears. This apple was harder to rip apart than others, and as you can see, it didn't come apart cleanly, like they usually do:

Ah, the sweet taste of victory. To the victor go the spoils!

I'll be the first to admit, it's pretty hot, being married to a man who can rip apples in half with his hands.
