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.
