I’ve seen several articles that recommend lifting odd objects like sandbags and kegs. I don’t have access to these objects–live in a fairly small apartment in NYC. But, I do have a 100-lb. wife who enjoys being lifted. Any recommendations on how to lift people as odd objects?
I imagine this sounds a bit peculiar but we have fun doing it.
I’ve found success with:
(1) Hug and swing-- I hug her around her waist and lift her about a foot of the ground gently swinging her back and forth. Difficult because hard for me to breath in this position.
(2) ‘Over the threshold’–Lift her like carrying a new bride over the threshold of a new home. Tires out the arms
(3) Sleeping wife dl – She falls asleep on the floor and I lift her up to go to bed. I can DL 305 X 5 but lifting her is still pretty hard. Getting arms beneath is most difficult.
Feminists be aware that my wife enjoys this activity also.
Though I doubt many feminists read the T-Nation Beginners thread.
