Lifting a homemade thick bar, with concrete block weights. This is my first day training my grip in a couple of years. This is a simple piece of equipment that I made using a 2.375″ Diameter pipe and some concrete blocks. It weighs in at 108 Lbs and I can add additional weight as needed. I originally built it to train for lifting things like the Thomas Inch Dumbbell and the Millennium Dumbbell, which weigh 172 Lbs and 228 Lbs respectively. In this video, I was able to load my device up to 202 Lbs and lift it, but in the past I’ve done as much as 245 Lbs. I plan to train with it on a regular basis again now. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
