“Since 5th grade, I used tough rubber rings as grippers. In 2011, I bought Captains of Crush grippers and I was able to close the No. 1 from a parallel set,” Sankov told IronMind.
“In 2012 I joined "Iron Grip" Community. In 2014 I started special training for the Captains of Crush (CoC) No. 3 certification under the guidance of Ivan Beritashvili. Also, I like to do armlifting, powerlifting and steel bending.
“My training goals are to close the CoC No. 3.5 gripper from a credit card set and No. 4 from parallel, bend a Gold Nail under official conditions, demolish a Rolling Thunder record, certify on the Crushed to Dust challenge, and double overhand deadlift 500 lb, on the Apollon’s Axle”
Sergey, your name has been added to the Captains of Crush No. 3 gripper certification list—nice work!
