The Thomas Inch Dumbbell is 175lbs, has a 2.5" diameter smooth handle and has two big bells on each end. This is one tough dumbbell to lift and it is a very rare feat for it to be lifted.
Most people who attempt to can't even get it off the ground. The reason it is so difficult is due to the thick handle and that the dumbbell is one solid piece. You really need a strong grip to lift one.
One day, while training with a few friends, Joel decided to pick one up in each hand and go for a walk.
The video above is Joel Sward's farmers walk (from a full deadlift) with a Thomas Inch Replica Dumbbell in each hand for 48.8 feet.
Witnesses included Matt Makousky, Brian Carlton, Alex DiMarco, Mark Lundquist, Chris Munger, Jeff Bissonnette and David Ostlund.
At the time this lift was done, it was the furthest that anyone had ever walked with these dumbbells!
