Like we needed a few more....but finished out the top row anvil storage area in the visitor grip area. Now the Anvil Chorus extends the full length of the rack! Moved another 800 lbs. of York globe dumbbells into the area as well. We moved additionaloverflow to some new storage area at production facility so plenty of good solid used barbell and grip equipment available for anyone swinging through the area. Thinking again about grip I wonder as I did with the first Blob ! just how heavy of a York globe dumbbell can be turned on end palmed pinch gripped and lifted? I think the lightest York Globe bell is a 50 so that will be a starting point. Ok......the big question ,can anyone find and successfully lift the 50 to get the ball rolling? Or is that even possible? Straight down grip no hooking fingers under bell or trying the 1000 ways to bypass gravity ......lets see what can be done!
Dave stopped by last night to lift the York 50# dumbbell; I am not sure if this was what Mr. Sorin was describing but Dave is willing to make changes and do it again.
Nice! Unfortunately few people have access to them. These Globes seem to go for a premium due to there scarcity. I'd like to see this lift (and additionally the half globe pinch lift) be added to the Gripboard Stat list.
