4-16-11: 3.5″ Dumbbell Walk

4-16-11, Saturday


*Notes: Mentioned on YouTube already that Al Myers made this 3.5″ diameter dumbbell for me and sent me one and 6 other guys as well!  Very generous.  It also lets me train this official USAWA event (actually – the USAWA Dumbbell Walk) in case he has it in next year’s USAWA National Grip Championships. 

-59×1-both hands     *Notes: Used thumb. 

-79×1-both hands     *Notes: Used thumb again.

-102×1-both hands     *Notes: Thumbless on both hands this time.  Felt pretty hard but I didn’t have more time to experiment with different hand positions today. 

*Overall Notes: Great deep down soreness later that night in my forearms even from just 3 light singles.
