I have been lamenting my weak unilateral strength which has been exposed with my recent work with dumbbells and then I come across this video of then 65 year old Thomas Inch lifting his famous Inch Dumbbell. Amazing!
The Inch dumbbell is 172 lbs with a 2.5 inch diameter handle and has become a legend in the old-time strongman world.
Inch had dumbbells weighing 75, 140, 153 and 172 lbs and all were characterized by very large diameter, hard to grip handles, which added greatly to the task of lifting it, which few men ever did.
