Detailed Description

Step up to the Crushed-to-Dust! Challenge.

IronMind is extending the Crushed-to-Dust! Challenge to all comers as a way to standardize and measure grip prowess in a well-rounded group of tests. To meet the challenge and be certified, you must do all three of the following in an official contest according to the rules*:

  • close a Captains of Crush No. 2 gripper
  • lift 20 kg/45 lb. on an IronMind Hub
  • lift 90 kg/200 lb. on the Rolling Thunder DL Handle

The same implements and rules that define the Crushed-To-Dust Challenge are used for the CTD+, except that one must be certified on the Captains of Crush No. 3 gripper to be eligible, and the required performance level for each event is as follows:
  • close a Captains of Crush No. 3 gripper
  • lift 35 kg/77 lb. on an IronMind Hub
  • lift 115 kg/254 lb. on the Rolling Thunder DL Handle

How can you participate? Check the Rules for How to Certify for the Crushed-to-Dust! Challenge and jump in-if you meet the challenge, you will be added to our list of certified CTD masters and you'll receive a certificate and a T-shirt proving to the world that you're a grip force to be reckoned with.

Contest organizers and promoters: if you wish to hold a Crushed-to-Dust! Challenge along with your strongman, Highland Games, armwrestling, or other contest; at your booth at an expo; or in conjunction with a strength fest at a local fair or festival, please contact us at We'll provide the information and support you need to put on the CTD Challenge. It's easy, it's fun, and it adds a new dimension to your event-and anyone can enter!
