At Memorial City Mall in Houston, Texas, Dennis Rogers’ established a World Record One Arm Dumbbell Curl record of 98 pounds x 10 Reps with an Iron Master Dumbbell- he weighed 148 Pounds at the time. Not many heavyweights can even come anywhere close to such a display.
That’s 285 horsepower on each arm! — and one wrong move meant they would have to scrape Dennis off the runway. This amazing feat earned the Association of Oldtime Barbell and Strongman’s (AOBS) highest award from founder Vic Boff.
Dennis has appeared on The Discovery Channel, The Best Damn Sports Show Period, Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, Live with Regis and Kathie Lee, The Late Show with David Letterman, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Stan Lee’s Superhumans and dozens of other television shows in the US and all over the world.
You may not believe this but Dennis Rogers weighed all of 79 lbs. in high school and even today tips the scales at only 160 pounds. Even though he may not fit what you think of as a typical “Strongman” Dennis has performed feats that have yet to be duplicated.
