    You're right Steve, dead on correct. Lots of folks talk about doing work but few actually DO WORK.

      312 Pound natural stone.

      Object: Load to three foot high barrel, let go of stone, grab stone, unload from barrel, lower under control to the floor. Do this for as many reps as possible in 60 minutes.

      No tacky used, only some chalk.

      Result: 42 reps, soreness and a large appetite.
      Train hard, eat well, rest sufficiently and repeat. Sounds simple? It is!

          Steve,

          This is a very high level workout indeed.

          Lift
          Soreness
          Eat.

          What more could you want in life.

            Checked out the vid,Dave, looks heavy! I also looked at the video of the kinda square block/stone pressing. That's what I do with a tractor wheel weight that weighs around 140-150#'s. I have a kind of round granite boulder that's about 60#s (higher reps) but I'm still looking for a heavier stone to train with.

              Steve,

              Set the clock for 30 minutes and clean and press your 60 pound stone as many times as possible. See how you like that. It is a very thorough workout.

                I'll have to give it a go sometime. Yesterdays workout was shoveling the 4-5" of snow off the driveway and sidewalks followed by some dumbbell lifting.

                  345 Natural Stone Bear Hug Squats X 20 Reps

                  Put me on the floor for at least fifteen-twenty minutes. A major PR for me largely due to the support of the guys around me today namely Austin & Steve Weiner, Steve Abromowitz and Len Spero. Chalk used. Legs were rocked for an hour. 20 rep squats with a stone is no joke mangs.

                    One of the greatest feats of strength that I have ever witnessed. Very inspiring stuff.

                        345 Stone Carry x 61 yards.

                        This was a 61 yard bear hug carry with a turn at 30 yards. I used chalk on my hands. Wet and icy conditions prohibited me from more distance. It just wasn't too safe to push the carry to the bitter end. I will upload a video link to this fun later on tonight. My chest compression strength is very strong right now. Much to be said from all the barrel work over the last decade.

                        411 x 5 (lap singles)

                        I got my 411 natural stone on my lap five different times. It is such a difficult stone to figure out. It's shape makes it difficult to balance. One of these training sessions, I will figure it out and then walk with it. It didn't happen today but I was close. Chalk on the hands.

                        Bodyweight 264.1

                          Dave,

                          345 pounds and 20 reps - truly amazing!

                          Great work!

                              Have you guys considered a trip to try the Husafell Stone?

                                I bet it would get picked Chris if not picked and walked with. Strong stone lifting guys.

                                  No doubt this kind of training would lead to a great chance of doing the full circle of the pen. I don't do carries like this often but the chest compression is always the first thing I notice.

                                    @ Peter & Roger I appreciate the shout. The bear hug squats with the 345 stone are a direct result of the time I spent training with 1/4 kegs, 1/2 kegs, full whiskey barrels, and 55 gallon drums. By making them a major part of my training life, I have been able to hold stones like that 345 securely enough to be able to do the 20 rep squats without the bear hug ever being the issue at hand. It also make distance carries with very heavy objects easier for me. It's a very painful training process but one I embrace. No pain, no gain.

                                    @ Chris & Nick, if I was in front of the Khavellan stone right now, I would pick it up and go for a good walk no doubt. It really wouldn't be a big deal for me, just another stone. Keeping it real.

                                      Dave, it sounds like you need to go to Iceland and give The Husafell Stone a try.

                                        Bill -

                                        This sounds like a plan - someone's going to be first New Yorker to hit Full Sterkur status . . . What do you think, Dave?

                                          The Stone is there and waiting. Train hard, believe and go fulfill a destiny.
