Who's managed this?

WILLSAN isn't far off!

I can imagine, for example, a freakishly strong 60kg guy with good technique managing a 60kg DB, but as you go up in bodyweight it seems less and less plausible.

Heaviest person to manage it?

One for the weightlifters?

I reckon with some of that ye olde bent press technique it could be done.

John Grimek could apparently bent / side press well over his bodyweight, which was around 200lb;


John came into contact with several of the once named “Strongest Man in the World’, titled men. Canadian, Louis Cyr’s huge thick handled dumbbells, one in particular weighed 269 lbs, John bent pressed it – no less than nine times in an afternoon (note: a bent press is an old time single arm lift). John could side press unofficially 245 lbs and one arm swing with a specially loaded dumbbell weighing 230 lbs or more. Extremely creditable poundages without attempting limits.

105kg lifters with good tech will have the best chance at this one I reckon.

Infact hasn't Clegg done the 105kg Millennium DB?

I remember asking this before, and it turned out a few people on here have done it.
