I have been tearing cards and bending nails for over 6 years. I have been fortunate enough to have competed with and learned from some of the men with the strongest hands on the planet.

As a strength coach, I have lectured at many strength and conditioning clinics and conferences and have written dozens of Grip Strength articles on,, and

I have taught athletes, fellow strength coaches, and grip strength competitors about card tearing.

Card Tearing Isn't a Workout, you Say?

I beg to differ. Tearing cards is a great way to get a workout. Tearing cards burns calories and gets you breathing like trying to press a big kettlebell or pulling a truck. Tearing cards also creates tension in the arms, torso, core and legs, meaning you are developing strength generation in a coordinated manner throughout your entire body.

Take Your Place in History

There is a legendary history of the performing strongmen that awed the crowds by bending nails, breaking chain, and tearing cards. Now with the information in this ebook, you can take your place in Card Tearing History.

Realize the Cross-over to Other Strength and Sport Movements

You may have never thought of it but the arm positioning in card tearing is nearly identical to many other strength efforts you may be involved in. For instance:
    - Choking: The card tearing position is very similar to choking someone out on the Mixed Martial Arts mat!

    - Pressing Movements: The arm positioning in card tearing is very similar to the arm position in the bench press!

    - Wrestling: The squeeze you put on the cards mimics the squeeze you put on your opponent's hand, wrist, forearm or ankle!

If you tear cards for no other reason, do it because it's fun!

Saying you can tear a deck of cards is one thing. Showing your friends you can do it is even better. Now is the time to get the tools to get you there. This ebook will show you the techniques to master and the auxiliary strength movements to make your hands strong like a pair of hydraulic shredding devices!

The best part about this ebook is the price.

"Jedd: The card tearing book is awesome. Your ebook specifically explained a lot of mistakes I was making in previous attempts.
Attached is a picture of the first two decks I ripped immediately after reading the ebook. I wrapped the first one in black athletic tape, and gave the second one a go without. These are completely full decks, with jokers and the extra "rules for poker" cards as well.
So thanks for the great information!"

Jim Bathurst

If you are interested in tearing cards then get this book now. Its well worth the small price."
Logan Christopher

"Jedd Johnson's Card Tearing Ebook is a great resource! I'm extremely pleased this manual is now in my library. I can't think of anyone better to learn grip training from than Jedd. The ebook does a quality job explaining multiple styles of tearing. More importantly for me, Jedd adds a high quality exercise index packed with innovative grip training techniques.

"Got your card tearing e-book yesterday and just wanted to say thanks for a great product. After an elbow injury at the beginning of this year I've really slipped on my grip work and the ebook was just the thing I needed to inspire me to get back into it. I'd torn a couple of cheap decks last year but they were really slow and messy, can't wait to get back into it and start destroying some cards!"
