GI’s Ehsan Farahi & Edwin Mejia Jr. Face Off In Weightlifting Grip Challenge


Ehsan Farahi and Edwin Mejia Jr. hit the Generation Iron Personal Training facility for a Generation Iron grip challenge

The Generation Iron Personal Training Facility in New York is only a short trip away from the GI headquarters. So some key members of our team decided to take a trip up for a workout just north of NYC. However, before the team jumped into a workout proper – GI Persia’s Ehsan Farahi and GI co-founder Edwin Mejia Jr. decided to face off in a friendly challenge. With a camera ready to go – Ehsan and Edwin decided to face off in a grip challenge to see who could grip the largest weight (and most likely determine who had the bigger hands).

You can watch the full grip challenge video above. The challenge itself consisted of a full row of dumbbell weights in line from lightest to heaviest. Each challenger started with the lowest weight and took turns gripping and lifting the dumbbell. As the weight increased, the challenge expanded – and their fingers needed to stretch a little bit more. But at what weight was their limit? And who ultimately stood tall as the victor? You’ll have to check the quick video in full to find out.

Looking to try the grip challenge yourself? Feel free to share your recorded grip challenge face offs and tag Generation Iron on social media. Maybe your video will get highlighted and featured on our channel.
