The athletes will each attempt to dead lift the IronMind Hub-Style device and loading pin increasing with each attempt till there is ONE MAN STANDING.  Time starts when pin is loaded and athlete’s name called, and athlete has 30 seconds to commence the lift.  The lifter starts the lift with all five fingertips of the lifting hand touching the plate at the base of the Hub. It is permissible that the fingers rotate somewhat from this position during the course of the lift, but holding the Hub as if grabbing a door knob is not allowed.  The lifter must stand up straight; once standing straight, the lifter waits for a down signal from the referee before returning the weight to the ground. Contact must be maintained between the lifter’s hand and the Hub until the weight is resting on the floor. The referee then indicates if the lift was accepted.  The anticipated schedule of weights will be (subject to Referee’s judgment): TBD Each athlete must select an opening weight prior to the commencement of the competition, and may “pass” on subsequent weights as long as he does so prior to his turn.   World and American Record is 80.2lb and held by Zach Jacobs March 9, 2013.

CoC Silver Bullet Challenge: World Record Attempt Rules

1)   A genuine IronMind Captains of Crush No. 3 gripper must be used.

2)   The gripper must be new, in an unbroken package and opened on the spot.

3)   A genuine IronMind CoC Silver Bullet must be used, with 2.5 kg of weight hanging from the silver bullet and this weight may take the form of either an IWF or IPF recognized calibrated plate or some other weight that has been demonstrated to be no less that 2.50 kg on a certified or otherwise demonstrably-accurate scale.

4)   The CoC Silver Bullet is inserted by the competitor no deeper than up to the top edge of the clear band, so that the script Captains of Crush® is legible, and so that all four fingers are in contact with the CoC gripper handle* (dropping the pinky completely off the end of the gripper handle is expressly prohibited).

5)   Using one or two hands, the competitor closes the CoC No. 3 in his own time so that the two handles hold the CoC Silver Bullet in place and once this position has been achieved, and only one hand is holding the gripper shut, the referee gives the signal to start the clock.  If the competitor fails to get a secure hold on the CoC Silver Bullet he is allowed one chance to reset it.

6)   Time stops when the Silver Bullet drops from the handles or when the referee observes any opening of the gripper handle for any reason whatsoever.
