I was lucky enough to recently acquire a IM Holle-It-Up Dumbbell Handle. I know that these were made as trainers for the Inch Dumbbell lift. I was wondering what numbers people had to work up on this handle before a successful Inch Dumbbell lift. Also, if anyone has any recommendations as to what the best hand placement on the handle would be.

Nice thickbar-army there! I would first work out with normal loadable/globe, and after that holle-up with hand-position that stress thumb most.

The silver bell is a Slaters Hardware Shot loads.  It is about full at 124#.  In front of the Slaters Bell is the IM Holle-It-Up.  From the back right is a 180lb custom welded bell with a 2.5" handle.  In front of that is its little brother at 127#,cut shorter but plates can be added.  In front of that is a custom inch trainer handle that takes plates.  It is spin lock, so the plates do not rotate or move.  It is loaded to 137#.  I will get closer pictures up toninght
