We use anywhere from 40 to 100 lb DBs depending on what we're trying to accomplish. Ussually we're in the 50-70 lb range using only one hand. When we use a 2 hand grip there are a lot of complaints about discomfort (which limits the effectiveness because they don't attack the hip extension) and / or skin being rubbed off on the thumb. Maybe we're holding wrong? How do you hold?Interlaced or overlapped?
damn 100lbs one hand. i use overlapped grip but i dont go heavy.
[/quote]Actually, any time we've attempted to go over 85 lbs we've used two hands. The large majority of the time we're using 45-65 lbs in one hand. The heaviest we've used with one hand is 85 lbs and this required a strap.
i have only performed db swings a few times and didnt feel much, so im curious how you perform ur swings, is it similar to this?
Set your feet as if you were about to perform a squat, while holding the dumbell in front of you. Squat down and let the dumbell drop between your legs. Keep your back arched as you descend down and look straight ahead. Once you reach the full squat position, immediately explode up by extending at the hips, while simultaneously flexing at the shoulders and raising the dumbell above your head. Keep your elbows straight
