17-Feb-07: What is the Inch Dumbbell?

If you've spent any time reading the various Diesel Crew sites, you've seen us mention the Inch Dumbbell. Joe Roark, student and teacher of Iron History, has compiled an entire series of articles covering the history of the Inch Dumbbell, and its creator, Thomas Inch. Joe maintains his own site, Iron History, and it is great. I am sure you will have fun reading about this extraordinary part of Iron History.

Each segment includes plenty of historical pics and videos. My personal thanks to Joe Roark for developing this interesting read! Hope you all enjoy.

Check out the IronMind site for some big news that's happening. Apparently, Laine Snook is getting real close on the #4 COC gripper. Also, if you're close to being ready to certify on IronMind's grippers or on their red nail, you might want to head to the FitExpo and get it done this weekend. Just click on this picture of Mr. Snook to read more on this breaking news.
