Back to the Basics that make and keep me strong. 
After a couple of max effort days lifting stones two weekends back to back, it’s been nice focusing on some light kettlebell and bodyweight movements.

Natural stones have been a totally different animal than the atlas stones. More of a puzzle in some ways... It’s fun yet challenging. 
The 180 pound stone at our gym is compact, odd shaped and has lots of ridges...along with a smooth slick side.
Last week was the closest I’ve gotten to shouldering it.
I had a first lift with the 220# natural stone as well. Nice and wide, great handles, but a bit cumbersome. Finally got this one to my lap after several attempts.
•
Stones have become part of my training one or two sessions every 10-14 days. A heavy and a light day. 
Thanks to @stewsquatch for being patient in teaching me as I learn.

So incredibly proud of these competitors today. They’ve all put in the work, time and belief into their training...each one of them exceeding their goals.
Every time, the most inspiring part of competition for me is when I see self-imposed limitations and barriers shattered by ferocity, conviction and confidence. 💪🏼
I’m so inspired by all who competed! Can’t wait for October. 
Really awesome having my friend @will_da_beast1 out to compete and destroy today!

Had the honor of “putting the wind beneath” these natural stones last night at the Salt Lake City FitCon and being the first female to successfully lift, lock out and hold the Payson Stones for time. I exceeded my goal of a 10 sec. hold and held on for 14.2!
243 lbs. in my left and 267 lbs. in my right. (Total of 510#)
These stones were part of the indoor Highland Games at FitCon put on by our @blackflagstrengthandfitness . They are also available to lift at the annual Payson Scottish Festival. 
In the spirit of the Dinnie Stones of Scotland, the men Lift and carry for distance. 
The Women’s standard is just to lift them.
Thanks for the opportunity and the training tips @stewsquatch and @kilted_in_black and for my family and friends who were there to witness it. It meant a lot that I had so much support. 
If I ever get another chance at these again, I would change my stance and maybe even try to walk them a bit.

I was pleasantly surprised to come across this article today in the @strongfirst archives about how lifting stones aligns with StrongFirst. A great read by @drjewett07 .
•
As a StrongFirst instructor getting into stones, I’ve noticed that stones make me stronger in my kettlebell training and barbell work. 
As Dr. Jewett says in his article in reference to his own training, “lifting stones will build a certain kind of strength that cannot be attained using other implements. It will reveal gaps in your ability to create tension and in setting the position of your trunk.” •
He goes on to say to not replace stones with your other training tools but to implement stones as a skill for increased strength. I agree with him 100%
•
If you’re interested in incorporating stone training into your repertoire, let me know. We have stones of every size and shape @blackflagstrengthandfitness  and offer skill sessions!

As Mark Reifkind said, “The dead swing is the box squat of kettlebell swings.”
Dead swings reduce elastic energy storage and are much harder than a traditional swing because each rep is from a dead stop. This has been a great finisher on lower body days and transfers well for a stronger more powerful hip hinge. Today I incorporated them after heavy deadlifts and squats. Dead swings work the lats, blast the core, and are pure power! 💥

What I love most about skills of strength is the challenge.
Bent presses are one of those incredibly challenging lifts.
The rotary component requires spine and hip mobility and loads of practice to master.
•
I’m far from mastering the bent press, but am enjoying the process of practice and learning to use different implements in training. 
Yesterday was the 24 and 32 kg Kettlebells. Today, our new circus dumbbell (loaded to 60#). I love the uniqueness of the dumbbell... very “strongmanesque”! 💪🏼
•
The bent press is great for increasing lat and rotational strength. As well as core and shoulder stability. The ultimate strength (strongman) exercise!
•
Shout out to @strongashec for his windmill/ bent press drills, they’ve been incredibly helpful in developing this lift.
