The Two Hands Anyhow is a traditional strongman lift that was popular with lifters such as Arthur Saxon and Thomas Inch (of challenge dumbbell fame). The goal was to lift as much weight overhead with two hands in any method as long as you were not assisted by an outside force. The most common version of the Two Hands Anyhow had lifters bent press a barbell with the strong arm and then lift a smaller weight with the other arm, usually a kettlebell. The world record for the two hands anyhow in this style is 448 lbs by Arthur Saxon who used a 336 lb barbell and a 112 lb kettlebell.
