Here’s a video clip of the Derek Poundstone training routine leading up to the World’s Strongest Man competition in 2011.
If you’re unfamiliar with Derek, he’s a monstrously strong police officer. As big as he looks, he’s so much smaller than the largest WSM competitors that his strength is all the more impressive. Watch him compete if you get a chance. He dominates.
Here’s Adam Glass holding the Inch Replica dumbbells for time. When I asked him if he thought I’d be able to lift one of them, his first question was, “Are you pulling over 220 on the Rolling Thunder without any problems?”
The answer was no, although I’m getting 210 pretty easily these days. I’m anxious to actually try one of the dumbbells. I’ll have a chance in April. Report forthcoming.
