Proving they have superior all-around grip strength, Luke Raymond, John Stepien and Jedd Johnson have been certified on the Crushed-To-Dust! Challenge.

IronMind, grip central since 1988, developed the Crushed-To-Dust Challenge! as a way to recognize all-around grip strength excellence—it’s an achievable standard based on three readily available, widely used and well understood measures of grip strength, with a carefully calibrated performance standard on each:

Close a No. 2 Captains of Crush gripper
Lift 20 kg/45 lb. on the IronMind Hub
Lift 90 kg/200 lb. on the Rolling Thunder


Lucas Raymond is 31 years old, 6’ tall and weighs 201 lb. John Stepien is also 31 years old, 6’ 1” tall and weighs 288 lb. Jedd Johnson is 37 years old, 6’2” tall and weighs 254 lb.

Congratulations, gentlemen—your names have been added to the Crushed-To-Dust! certification list.
