NEW CHALLENGES

The Stone Roller
There will be two challenges with this 185.13k stone

Challenge 1: Bearhug lift it off the floor.

Challenge 2: Deadlift it to full standing position. Hold the bar ends in an overhand grip and stand fully erect till the down signal. If you can do one lift, then reps is the next thing.

Is a jefferson lift possible or is the stone too wide? I reckon that'd be the only way I'd have a chance of lifting it.

Mark,
Sorry mate, no straddle allowed.
Pure Deadlift to standing only, overhand grip.
Nick came up with this challenge.
It would be very impressive to see you having a go at your bodyweight!

That's some challenge! I'll have a go, but it's some way off-I can deadlift over 180 but not double overhand yet.

No problem- thanks for the blob top, I tried it out tonight- I reckon I've got more chance of lifting the stone roller!
I'm going to add garden rollers to my regular ebay trawls along with anvils- maybe a baby version will show up one day.

It's good, but at the mo I'm lifting less than I can on the penny! I'm bidding on a 56lb anvil at Tadley at the mo, so please don't bid on it if you come across it :)

Just spotted this. That looks like a great piece of equipment.

Out of curiosity, what was it advertised as?

James,
Stone garden roller I think.
Was only £20, worth every penny!
This one looks old, and is stone, been cut from stone.
185.13k was more than I expected, but it makes a wonderful challenge!
