The grip strength of the average young American male is 16% lower than 30 years ago

The grip strength of the average young American male is 16% lower than 30 years ago

I have a feeling this measurement has been going down throughout the Industrial Revolution, not just in the era of personal computing. It was not long ago that the world was full of hammer-wielding smiths and axe-wielding lumberjacks. Even average people were chopping down trees to build their homes and barns. Today? Well ... texting is probably not that conducive to developing grip strength.
