Competing at Odd Haugen’s grip contest at the Chicago FitExpo this weekend, Russian gripster Alexey Tyukalov broke the world record on the CoC No. 4 Silver Bullet Hold.

Tyukalov first achieved prominence in the grip world when he announced his goal of breaking Mark Felix’s longstanding world record on the Rolling Thunder one-hand deadlift, which he went on to do. Tyukalov’s credits in the grip strength world also include being certified on the Captains of Crush No. 3 gripper, and being a former world record holder on the CoC No. 3 Silver Bullet Hold.


The CoC Silver Bullet Hold was developed by IronMind in 2012 as a way to simultaneously neutralize the impact of hand size and create a visually-exciting grip strength event—it has since proven extremely popular with both competitors and audiences worldwide. The men’s event began with the Captains of Crush No. 3 gripper, and then earlier this year the Captains of Crush No. 4 gripper was introduced as an additional division.
