In the first Arnold, they did this challenge with an authentic Inch DB and had to snatch it. The winner was the one who got it the highest. Mark Henry got it to above the waist. Pfister rested it on his thigh and then brought it up and pressed it, but didn't count. I believe Henry did do it later however in another venue.

It was ridiculously easy how he did that, especially that oomph to get it all the way up. Hard to believe he didn't rip his arm apart on that maneuver.

Incredible stuff by a guy that looked like he was let out of the home for the afternoon.

(J/K, no disrespect to the aged intended)
