How do they know it's 194kg? In light of a recent post elsewhere on this forum they may have guessed the weight.

He certainly is bloody strong - looking at his other Youtube videos.
And I hate to be a doubting Thomas...but I am.
A 194kg stone is the stuff of guys who deadlift over 300kg (not with lots of hitching) - though I'm sure he can load stones well.
The shame of this is: no one believes what anyone says any more even with video. There are too many wannabes in the strength world now who have no honour and will straight up lie about their lifts.
Does IAWA still run a postal league? It must only be to those known and trusted.
Now I am not saying this lift isn't true or an intentional lie.
It's just literally unbelievable!
So that's really good if it's true, good on him!

I too have been left scratching my head. I have a 194kg 22" stone and its the hardest thing I've lifted!! Watching his other videos there are ones of him doing 180 with no tacky!! There isnt many people in the world that can do that!! But if it all legit..FREAK!!!! :;cl)

Kasper`s lifting stones or other heavy strongman feats, here at Bjorns Wrestling and Trainingcenter are all for real !
Every strongman training machine and all our events are done with real weights, so the day it`s competiton time, you know you can lift the weights on the day !
We have a digital weight that can weigh up to 1500 kg. and everything here has been weighed
The 194 kg. atlas stone you see on the video is 22 " Slater stone and Kasper is lifting it up on a 130 cm. ramp
PS. : By the way I am his proud father :;cl)

Hi Asbjorn, that's great. We have a scale here that goes to 200-kilos so can weigh ours too but only in the past 7 days did one IM forum member post a story about an athlete stating he could do a 200-kilo stone and then failing on a 160 or so stone. It happened he had had someone guess, by mass and density calculations, what the weight was. Weighing it takes the guess work out.

I believe this feat - it remains my of my early days when Jouko Ahola was wondering me that "how you can lift 170kg stone with 150kg DL" :D
Of course single lifts are also a lot easier if you compare that you lift 5 stones in a row for a fast time and the last ones are 180-190 kgs.

Asbjorn, congratulations to your son.
And as a father, I know how proud I would be of my son, in not only follwoing my footsteps into the strength world, but to achieve this so young.
Actually, and not to redirect the thread, but my wife told me today, that my 3 and half year old son, lifted our 12kg kettle bell to his waist today, single handed! He weighs about 18kg and the handle is thick, not the grip friendly sporting type. My little girl (2 and a half) also lifted it to her waist with 2 hands - and that is her bodyweight!
I know I was proud of that!
Sometimes vicarious achievement is not so bad :)
