A gentlemanly method1Today I did the clean and press with 96 pounds in one arm. Look and cry! First I lifted it up with my right hand, using the left hand to assist it. Then I pumped the dumbbell 18 times. Finally, in a very gentlemanly way I put it down on the carpet again.
My grip has really improved to hold this much weight in one hand.
