Captains of Crush® No. 2 Gripper: A New Certification for Women

by Randall J. Strossen, Ph.D. | ©2014 IronMind


In 1991, IronMind began to certify men who officially closed its fearsome No. 3 gripper, the universal symbol of world-class grip strength, with grip-strength legend Richard Sorin being the first man to achieve this distinction; and starting immediately, IronMind will certify women who close the No. 2 Captains of Crush Gripper under official conditions.

As the No. 3.5 and No. 4 grippers were added to the Captains of Crush® Gripper family, certifications on them joined the No. 3, and now it’s time to take the next step.

Responding to requests and acknowledging their rising performances in the grip world, IronMind is providing an opportunity for women with superior grip strength to be recognized as they deserve by officially closing the No. 2 Captains of Crush Gripper.

The rules are the same as are already in place for the CoC No. 3, No. 3.5 and No. 4, so that leaves but one question:  Who will be the first woman to certify on the No. 2 Captains of Crush Gripper?
