Szalay greeted the youthful Inch with enthusiasm and predicted, for budding the strong man, a great future. Szalay placed much emphasis on adding the one hand dumbbell swing to Inch’s repertoire of lifts. He demonstrated the preliminary pick-up with back-swing, and holding the dumbbell close to the front discs to create a back-hang. Remember, this was in 1896, and even in our times many weightlifters would not know how to do a one arm swing to succeed with maximum poundage. Later it was discovered that loading the dumbbell heavier at the back end helped to swing greatest poundage possible.
