Outstanding Stone Lifting Clip
This is Chris Muir from Willoughby, Ohio. Chris is a 28-yr old Strongman competitor. This kid has a never-say-die attitude and he is out to murder any atlas stone that is in his way. In the video clip below, Chris does a triple with a 412-lb, 22-inch diameter atlas stone, lap to chest.
In case you are not familiar with stone lifting, let me tell you – that is ONE HUGE STONE!!! The fact that Chris is doing this at a mere 208 bodyweight makes it even more outstanding.
I was just on the phone with Chris and he says he is gunning for a 465-lb stone at Steve Slater’s contest in a few weeks. For that one, he won’t have to load a series of stones up onto a conventional platform. Instead he’ll choose one stone at a time and lift it over a 4-ft bar. He also says he has an order in for a lead insert to use for building an even heavier stone!
Best of luck to you Chris and keep up the good work.
