Yes, Ed's factory was in Holyoke MA. My Dad and my Uncle went there once and bought some weights and a bench, back in the early 70's.

i like how ed jubinville tested his equipment by having elephants stand on them. i heard grimek used to throw dumbells out the third floor window at york to test them.

yeah i've seen those too. they lock in place or something, i would think the grip might slip with those type of bars. multigrip curl bars i think they are called. how's this for a kettlebell?Huh

yes, those are the ones, have you ever used them.  i always thought the grip would slip out of place during use, causing possible wrist injury.

when was the last time anyone has seen stall bars in a gym, those were the wooden ladder like rack you used to see in high school and college gyms that you'd hook your feet in to do situps or hang on for leg raises. Huh Huh Huh

Yes, I used them years ago at my original gym, which is the only facility I've known to have them. Some of the veterans there called it the geode bar. We had a plate-loaded barbell one, and a cable attachment version.

I don't think they're dangerous. They do take some getting used to, though. The handles do not lock into position, but are meant to rotate to allow for adjusting supination/pronation during the movement, almost offering the benefits of dumbbells, but with the stability of a barbell.

Imagine doing bilateral Zottman curls with a barbell. That ability is the principle behind this bar.
It is an obscure piece of training equipment, for sure.
