The Big One

I’m on my way back to the big one of 32.5kg. In this video we are trying to show that with the mixture of good training, a positive attitude and an overzealous trainer you can achieve what might seem impossible. You will notice that Lewis keeps his hands firmly on the lowering part of the motion and he assures me that this is purely for safety as with such a heavy weight comes risk. Lewis ensures my wrist will stay straight and that the weight cannot cause me any harm. On the pressing motion I am in full control so that is why he can let go. This is a 30kg dumbbell (that is well over half a hundredweight) so please don’t try this at home without someone who is qualified present, even if you feel inspired to have a go.
