Makes the Heavy Handle Dumbbell So Great?
The Heavy Handle provides you with resistance from angles you have
never before experienced, and training in this way will build amazing
strength that will directly translate to more victories on the arm
wrestling table! See the exercises we recommend
for arm wrestlers using the Heavy Handle.
How Do I Use
the Heavy Handle?
The Heavy Handle™ dumbbells innovative design allows
you to use it either with standard 1" plates (not included) or a
cable attachment can be used to connect the Heavy Handle to a universal-type
of pulley machine for rows, curls and any type of cable pulls.
For reference purposes, we will call the weight
shaft with the cable attachment ring at the end 'Shaft A' and the weight
shaft in-line with the handle "Shaft B".
Why is the handle 2 inches in diameter?
The 2" knurled
handle was designed for use for athletes with average to larger hands and also for
the athletes that enjoy training with oversize bars and dumbbells to enhance
their grip strength. By training with a larger handle, you will build
tremendous strength in not only your wrists and forearms but also your
hands - all at the same time!
Why are there
two shafts and a ring on the end of each of the shafts?
There are two shafts at a 90 degree angle to each other so that
the athlete can change the angle of resistance when doing exercises. By
changing the weight on either 'Shaft A or B', the athlete can target different
areas of a muscle group just by changing the weight to a different shaft,
or in case of weight on Shaft B, by switching the weight in your hand
so that 'Shaft B' points in the opposite direction. The ring at the end
of 'Shaft B' is to be used to attach the Heavy Handle to any type of pulley/universal
weight machine and used for rows, pulls and curls.
We recommend the following exercises to build outstanding backpressure:
are perfect for developing the massive backpressure that is absolutely
essential to arm wrestlers. Many people do
this exercise with a sledge-hammer, but with the Heavy Handle™ Dumbbell,
you get to do the exercises with the weight at different angles.
To perform the
exercise with the Heavy Handle, start with your forearm resting on your
leg with your wrist hanging over your knee. With weight on Shaft A and
your thumb pointing towards the ceiling, slowly lower the weight until
your wrist is bent down towards the floor, then slowly raise the weight
finishing the movement with a "snap" (kick-up) at the end.
Wrist rotations have long been a favorite exercise for Armwrestlers.
Wrist rotations build the rotational strength in the wrist that is needed
to start a devastating toproll!
To perform wrist rotations with the Heavy Handle, put the weight
on Shaft B(top shaft) and rest your fore-arm on your knee. The exercise
can be done by either rotating the weight to your outside, inside, or
both to get an unbelievable forearm pump!! Don't start too heavy!!
Using the Heavy Handle for concentration curls (pictured below) or
for Hammer curls (not pictured), you will discover muscles you never even
knew you had! Its unique design makes these exercises far more effective
than when using traditional dumbbells. Even better, this exercise directly
translates into more victories on the arm wrestling table!
Due to the extra torque the Heavy Handle puts on your arm, the hardest
part of this exercise is not curling the weight but rather fighting to
keep your wrist straight. This is fantastic for arm wrestlers, because
it is EXACTLY THE TYPE OF RESISTANCE ENCOUNTERED IN A TOUGH ARM WRESTLING
MATCH!!! By building up this type of strength through training, you will
absolutely dominate your opponents!
While seated on the edge of a chair or bench, place your elbow against
your inner thigh with the weight plates on Shaft A . With a strict controlled
movement, lower the weight until your arm is straight, then lift it back
to the starting position while 'concentrating' on bringing your forearm
tight to your biceps.
