That video of Thomas Inch lifting his dumbbell above is bullshit – he was too old, and using a fake dumbbell.

It’s not clear whether he ever lifted his dumbbell (he actually had a lighter one too – so he may have switched them in his act)… but if he did, it would have been a deadlift.

Mark Henry has actually cleaned a replica inch dumbbell… pretty amazing feat, and very, very unlikely that Thomas Inch ever did the same.

You guys should try some thick handled lifting some time, dumbbells or barbell… it is very humbling, and a weight that seems light will be stapled to the ground if your hands aren’t strong enough. Anything from 2″ or over is hard for most people (unless you have massive hands).
