The Rolling Thunder deadlift is a marquee event in the grip strength world, but what about combining its grip challenges with a universal test of upper body strength? Meet Rolling Thunder pull-ups. And for those who walk on the wild side, how about one-arm pull-ups using a Rolling Thunder? Want one more to demonstrate total lower arm supremacy? How about a 1RM Rolling Thunder pull-up (weight of the competitor plus the added weight, highest total weight wins).

Rolling Thunder Pull-up Rules
1. An authentic current-model IronMind® Rolling Thunder® handle must be used, it cannot have been modified in any way, and it must be inspected to ensure that it revolves freely: holding the handle, lift the triangular metal frame and rotate it until it is horizontal (parallel to the ground). Release the metal frame to demonstrate that it rotates back to its original vertical position (pointing toward the ground) under its own weight.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
The Rolling Thunder is available from the IronMind store, which has a complete selection of grip strength and hand health tools.
