The Deep Waters Hercules Hold boasts features essential to competitors, promoters, and gym owners:


Set up or tear down in minutes with just a couple wrenches OR leave the hinge attached simply pull the pin to take the pillars off!

Easily stored against a wall, taking up almost no space

Transportable in any normal pickup truck and easily loaded even when working solo

Revolving handles to make it a true grip challenge and to prevent callous tears

You can load more weight on this apparatus than anyone will ever need. A mere 2 plates per side is incredibly humbling! Contact Paul for suggestions on contest weights if needed.

All you need is 2 normal barbells and some weight plates!

Available for only $749!
