You are now in position and ready to tear through it. In one fast, forceful, and fluid motion, KEEP QUEEZING THE BOOK TOGETHER WITH YOUR PECS AS HARD AS YOU CAN while rotating your hands so that they go from being palms facing down to palms facing up. This will create a tear in the book. Depending on your strength level, the book with either completely tear in half (if you are very strong) or tear only a little bit (if you are not as strong).

Tip: Make sure your grip is as tight as possible throughout the entire movement. If the book slides in your hands, you will not be able to tear the book in half.
