Art Walge’s Hub Lift

Posted on Wednesday, June 19th, 2019 by John Wood
We already knew that South Philly’s own Art Walge had a strong set of hands. Here he is upping the ante on the hub lift. It’s a monumental feat to lift a 45 lb. plate by the hub, Art does it with an extra 5 lbs. Art’s also a lefty! No doubt that kind of grip strength served Walge well on the mat.

Steve Stanko and The Hub Lift

Posted on Monday, October 29th, 2018 by John Wood
One of the classic classic grip feats was to pick up a York Deep-Dish 45 Pound barbell plate just by the hub, something weightlifting and bodybuilding champ Steve Stanko could do with ease, even with an added 10 pounds. Steve’s best on this feat was with over 90 pounds!
