Doug Hepburn’s Dumbbell Press

Doug Hepburn's Dumbbell Press

You know a guy is really strong when he can lift heavy dumbbells in the basic lifts. Here’s the great Doug Hepburn pressing a pair of 160(!) pound dumbbells (which were handed to him at the shoulders) at Ed Yarick’s Big Show.

Having to clean the dumbbells first is an altogether different lift although while training at Yarick’s Gym, Doug had previously strictly cleaned and pressed a pair of 142 pound dumbbells.

Unsurprisingly, Doug also set a new world record in the press that year with a 366-1/4 pound lift.
