Joe Hashey - Atlas Stones

Here is Joe Hashey hitting a recent Atlas Stone workout!

In this clip, he performs some stone shouldering.

This is a great movement for developing explosion for athletes because when done correctly, it trains triple extension: the near simultaneous firing of the ankles, knees, and hips. Triple extension exists in all power and speed sports. This is one of the reasons the Olympic lifts are so popular for athletics. As you can see, you can train the same groove with stones.

All the best in your training,

Forearm Wrapping for Stone Lifting

In this video, Matt Schumann loads a 330-lb over a 49" bar. At the Arnold Classic, and at many other contests, where the object is to load the heaviest stone possible, the stone is put over a bar, just like you see here in this video.

I also want to point out the way Matt wraps his forearms here. You'll see, that instead of some sort of sleeve or forearm guard, Matt uses common sports tape - something we all have access to and is very affordable. It conforms to the forearm perfectly, protects your skin from rough stone edges, and can easily hold a layer of tacky if you desire to apply it. This is the wrapping technique we cover in our Stone Lifting Fundamentals DVD.
