My Pullum Patent Bar

by Roger Davis

Pullum Bar - made to exact patent specifications

“Thought you may be interested in my Pullum Patent bar. One of my engineer friends helped me make it to the exact specifications of the 1921 Patent. It has a brass sleeve that rotates around the bar, pre-dating the Berg Olympic Bar by some years. I also have an almost full set of CWLC (Camberwell Weightlifting Club, the famous gym of WA Pullum) plates to complement it. It is a real work of art, but it lives a full and useful life rather than being a museum piece. I train with it almost every day.”

My Toys

by Roger Davis

"Thought you might like a picture of some of my you just want to hop on a plane and come round to play. The globe dumbbell is 40 kg, and has a 2" handle. At a sponsored charity event later this year, I want to lift it overhead 40 times in 40 minutes to mark by 40th birthday" - Roger Davis

(webmasters comment:  Thanks Roger for sending along these pictures of some of “your toys” – and YES I would like to “play around” with them.  If anyone else has special training implements, please send me a picture with a short writeup and I will share it on the website.)
