FBC Note:Eric is explaining the concept and the construction of the Frankenstein Barrels. These were constructed out of 55 gallon drums with a fat pipe welded through it to support any size olympic bar. Today we used a York Olympic Bar. I’ve lifted and pulled with a 3″ bar through it. This Thigh and Deadlift will really test your grip strength as you get heavier. All the added weight is put into the barrels which makes the lift very unyielding. This lift will test your grip strength and try to walk you. By this I mean, it will try to turn your body and move you. Dennis is training now to build a higher strength level then before. He now weighs 222lbs .We have combined resistance training with high end strength and endurance training. Between this style of training and the cold it just keeps getting better and better.
