Adjustable Olympic Dumbbell Handle
What is the sound of
one arm lifting?
Is it the sound of a grinding shoulder?
I hope not.
I hope all those dumbbell snatches are being done with tools that rotate, but I know they are not. Solid non-rotating equipment can be fun, but for some lifts, it can also cause real pain. Trust me, that is not a sound you don't want to hear.
One hand explosive lifts, just like the two handed lifts, can be done with old school non-rotating tools. Of course, there is a proper technique you have to learn. Basically, you have to let go of the dumbbell, rotate your hand and then re-grip it. It sounds easy, until you try it with limit type weights, whether it's your 1 RM, or just your last rep of a limit set. Once you hear that grinding, the damage is done. The next question is, how bad is the damage?
Rotating Olympic Dumbbells are a fairly easy solution to that problem.
Just like with an Olympic barbell, you never loosen your grip during the lift. Bingo! You have eliminated one more variable in your training.
I have heard it said that it doesn't matter what kind of bar you lift on, if you are really strong. Which, of course, is a load of BS. It is very simple, do dumbbell snatches with rotating dumbbells and you will:
- lift more;
- do it more consistently;
- and have a much lower risk of injury.
Hmmm... Would I like to lift heavier weights AND have a lower chance of injury in my back, rotator cuff, elbow or wrist?
Dumbbell snatches are great. Use the right tool.

Roger did a Review of this Olympic Dumbbell Handle and Does a nice One Hand Dumbbell Snatch with it.
Does not include weights.
"It's a work of art! Once you use one, you will never use an immobile (non-rotating) dumbbell again. It's enough to fight gravity, you don't need to also fight your equipment. This is like using a short Olympic bar. It's great."
