Can you lift the Thomas Inch Dumbbell?
Think you've got what it takes to lift the Thomas Inch dumbbell? Many have tried.. Only a few have succeeded.
There are a few different techniques employed by people these days to help make the lift easier. The main issue with the Inch Dumbbell is its ability to just roll out of your hands. If you can combat the roll, you’ve got a great chance of lifting it.
One way to do this is by tilting the dumbbell, it helps eliminate some of the roll, therefore making the lift easier.
That said… Deep down, you know you’ve been cheating (a little bit anyway). The best way to showcase your mammoth grip strength would be by balancing an object on either globe of the dumbbell, then lifting it whilst they stay on. This shows a completely level lift. A lifelong goal achieved, and membership to a very exclusive group of lifters.
