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.

    damn, talk about determination, if he can move that big a stone @ 208lb, what excuse do any of the WSM who have 100+lbs on him have???
