as I said nothing fancy but quite effective
also my makeshift clubbell made it in this shot
This is for grip strength I take it?
Simple, but looks like it would work well.
cost $13.23 to make at home depot
wtf? did you pay for the bucket too?
looks like a rolling thunder
yeah I actually didn't have any buckets laying around or access to any
they work great, just toss plates in there and walk up and down the stairs, out around the backyard, up and down the hallway..
holy shit my forearms feel like they've grown a half inch already
good going broly. very nice.
How much weight have you been able to pic up?
in for EDU
that wire handle on the bucket doesnt look like it will last long
I've carried buckets full of bricks, concrete, etc... never really had a problem with the handles
22.5 lbs ftl
sounds about right
yeah they are construction rated buckets, that handle will hold a lot. way more than I can lift right now by a 3" handle. I'll look into fashioning something stronger once I outgrow these.
err, did you read the thread title mate?
btw that looks hard. 3". sheesh! careful not to promote tendonitis!
gym for home
and why would that give you tendonitis
because a grip that is too large or too small increases wrist-muscle fatigue, making the wrist unstable and leading to too-large forces at the elbow; assuming he is doing more than just lifting them straight up and down without any arm movement.
nah that's pretty much it, pick up buckets, hold them at your side or out in front, and walk around, that or just load up as much weight as you can pick up and rep out picking it up
