38-year old Denis Cyplenkov often called “The Ukrainian Hulk” has the heaviest strict curl record in the world and one of the best arm wrestler in the world.
Denis is famous for his incredibly large hands and forearms.
He build up his physique to become the strongest curler in the world, he is also a powerlifter and a strongman.
He holds the world record in the strict curl which he did back in 2015 when he strict curled 249 lbs.
Former holder of that record was no other than CT Fletcher who curled 225 lbs and that record held for many years.
Denis Cyplenkov has crazy genetics his hands are around two times bigger than normal hands which is especially beneficial when it comes to arm wrestling and strength.
He is known for having the biggest arms in Russia and possibly the thickest hands in the world.
He is a champion arm wrestler and a big muscular man.
However, in the past year Denis had some health complications due to his heavy training and has down sized quite a bit from his insanely muscular physique.
He ruptured blood vessles near the kidney which has resulted in him not being able to train with the same intensity as he has done for the last several years.
So he is not as muscular now as he was couple years back when he was in his top condition but hopefully he can train to get back into his old shape and start competing again.
Denis has such strong hands and arms that he can crack walnuts with his fingers.
