LISTEN ON SOUND CLOUD
Tonight our guest is Jedd Johnson. Jedd is owner of The Diesel Crew, widely recognized as a world leader in Grip Strength and for strength & Conditioning of athletes as well. I’ve been Facebook friends with Jedd for several years, but I’ve known about Jedd for about 15 years mainly through my good friend Dan Cenidoza (who can be heard on episode #34.) The night I had Dan on my D.C. radio show as a guest, Jedd and The Diesel Crew flooded us with calls.
Jedd is a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist and is a regular speaker at the Pennsylvania NSCA Clinic. He has written numerous articles on Grip training, Strongman Training and Athletic Strength & Conditioning for Straight to the Bar, The Diesel Crew and others.
Jedd is Not a “Grip Only" guy. He is whole body strong and can lift heavy. He has lifted a 400 pound Atlas Stone and has put close to 350 pounds overhead. He has competed in, and won, many Grip and Strongman contests as well.
He is an Iron Mind Certified Captain of Crush. He has lifted the 50 pound Blob, pinched two 45-pound plates, deadlifted the Inch Replica dumbell with one hand, bent the IronMind Red Nail and the Fat Bastard Barbell’s Grand Bastard Nail, as well as several other renowned grip feats.
