I found this photo of a bad-ass looking barbell in an old weightlifting magazine from 2003. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find any other information about it. I have contacted the club this barbell belongs to for more information, hopefully they will get back to me.

On my rest days I normally do some grip training and some ab wheel roll-outs and maybe some glute work if I feel like going to the gym. Today was almost a total rest day with just some grip work.
- 0.1 kg x 5 reps (+6 pts)
- Crumbling up newspapers
The “crumbling up newspapers” note is an exercise I recently learned from Finger Grip Strengthening. Unlike more traditional grip exercises like Farmer’s Walk and Hand Grippers this exercise works all the fingers by moving them.
