It’s so dependent on the size and shape of the stone. Some have more depth to them, some are shorter, some taller, etc. Metal vs concrete matters as well.
In many instances, when the stone is heavier or just larger, I have to kind of ‘lap’ the stone to get my grip right. In this instance, it’s so light and small, I can kind of one-motion it up. I can grab it high, pick it and toss it a little to get under it and just take off, rather than wasting precious seconds at the start line getting set. I don’t have to get crazy low on the stone to get the bottom of it above my hips. So the thing I’m going to train more than the actual carry is the pick and take-off. I’m going to play around with trying to get one arm around and under it, but whether I do that or not in comp depends on how long it takes and how it affects my speed.
