One of my favourite strongman "The Horse Shoe Breaker" John Grunn Marx used to clean a 70kg dumbbell with a 2 3/4 inch handle .

Here's a link to the feat http://m.youtube.com...h?v=xiEK6Zd1SCs

My son Dan who's just turned 18 is training to continental the Apollons axle , this is especially hard as he's 2 metres tall.

Phenomenal :blink !   I’m pretty sure there’s a good reason why few really thick-handled dumbbell clean clips get posted.

 

Thanks for sharing Chris – I really enjoy watching your feats.

I think I can speak for the entire grip community when I say that EVERYONE loves when Chris James posts ANY feat on video. It seems everything Mr. James does is world class, and he makes it look so easy!!! I am a huge fan, and love the odd feats, like the old Two Hands Anyhow video he has up, one arm thickbar cleans, etc. etc. I wish he'd put more vids up!

 

And his son... wow, only 18 and so big and strong already, nice! Dad must be proud!!
