Have you ever shaken someone's hand and been scared - really scared - that your hand was about to be crushed and permanently disfigured forever?
And deep inside, didn't you secretly wish you had that kind of bone-crushing hand power?
Well now you can.
I'm going to show you how you can develop hands so powerful that you'll feel like the creator and destroyer of worlds.
How can I make such a bold claim?
Because I'm Jedd Johnson, Grip Athlete, previous World Record Holder in the Two Hand Pinch Lift, and an IronMind Certified Red Nail Bender and I am personally going to show you how to bend a Grade 5 bolt in 30 days or less.
And here's how - it's easy once I show you my super-secret shortcuts.
And why would I share this valuable information - this goldmine that I've accumulated over the last 10 years?
Because I'm sick and freakin' tired of all the crap out there that "so-called experts" are passing off as "grip-strength" material. Hell, I've seen better material in toy stores shopping for my kids!
I went out into my garage "where the magic happens" and pulled out all the stops and shot over 4 hours of bending madness and cut it down to only the most important, most relevant, most cutting-edge information and wrapped it up into 90 minutes of pure content.
