Odd Haugen and the World Record Thomas Inch Dumbbell Lift

It might not look very heavy, but the Thomas Inch dumbbell is one of the hardest implements to lift with one hand, for a couple reasons — one, the handle is about the same circumference as a coke can. Try getting a good grip on that thing. And two, it weighs 172 lbs. Add the two together and you get an implement that time and time again humbles otherwise strong men. But lifting the Thomas Inch dumbbell is something that Odd Haugen is particularly well-suited for, having one of the best grips of all time. In this Rogue Record Breaker event, Haugen attempts to lift the dumbbell a record 66 times — one lift for every year of his life — in 10 minutes.
