The Biggest Mistake in Inch Dumbbell Training
The WRONG Way to Train for the Inch Dumbbell
This is probably gonna surprise some people, but I’m dead serious about this.
People are always asking me, “Hey, how much do I need to lift on the Rolling Thunder to know I’ll be able to lift the Inch?”
To me, the RT and the Inch are so different, there’s no way to even give a good number.
In fact, if you’re training to lift the Inch Dumbbell by using the Rolling Thunder, you’re wasting your time.
To be honest, basing your training to lift the Inch around Rolling Thunder training, is easily the biggest mistake you can make.
Here’s my top 3 reasons why the Rolling Thunder doesn’t work to get you strong enough to lift the Inch:
1) The Action Doesn’t Match Up
Although the Rolling Thunder spins, the action doesn’t match what happens when you try to pick up the Inch Dumbbell.
2) The Pull Height Doesn’t Match Up
When you lift the RT to lockout, most people only have to lift it about 8 inches or so. When lifting the Inch, the pull distance is at least doubled, so the time under tension factor is much more intense on the Inch.
3) Specificity is the Key
There’s no single factor that can help you lift the Inch Dumbbell than actually having one to train on. People knock their head off the wall trying to build thick bar strength with the Rolling Thunder only to be stopped in their tracks when they cross paths with one.
To give you an idea of how it worked with me, I trained my butt off for over the year using the RT and other tools, and failed to lift the Inch on many occasions.
Once, I bought one, I lifted within like 2 months.
Naturally, I don’t expect everyone to run out and buy an Inch Dumbbell, because of their expense.
