    Not for the dumbbells pictured in the video... Hex dumbbells with a flat edge large enough for the fingers to press against are the best dumbbells. In this manner it most closely replicates the feat of lifting the blob, one half of a 100 lb York dumbbell.

    Try it with one hand at a time and go for max weight and then max time at a lower dumbbell. Pinch the flat edge of the dumbbell with out letting your fingers go around or under the dumbbell... This makes it MUCH easier.... Good luck doing so with the 40 lb hex dumbbells anyway :P

    Obviously size of the hands makes a big difference, for females getting to 30 lbs is pretty easy but hand size will most likely limit going higher.
    For males getting to 50 lbs will be tough even for average hand size... Small hand size wont be large enough to go across.
