Hub Lift Submissions
Sick, Hard Hub Plate
It is time to vote for the winner of the Grip Strength Challenge – hub lifting a 25-lb plate.
Many members of the Diesel Universe found out just how tough a hub lift of a 25-lb plate can be, especially when it is a very shallow or even slightly angled hub.
If you didn’t have time to shoot a video for the challenge this week, do make sure you try this out because it works the thumbs very well and helps toughen the fingers. Just don’t overdo it at the beginning, because this kind of pinching makes my fingers sore as hell!
Below are the entrants…Who did the best with 25-lbs? It could be on either a 25-lb/10-kg plate or I allowed 25-lbs on a hub loading device, which you will see below.
Remember the factors of difficulty – especially the sheer height and angle of the hub. In general, a shallow gripping surface will be tougher than a deeper one, and an angled hub will be harder than a straight one.
Thanks for voting, and remember – one vote per I.P. address. Voting will go on until 5PM on Monday!
