New Hampshire Lifter II


You can try hanging from a pullup bar, or actually doing pullups, in between sets of squats; see if that helps. Read that somewhere, and makes sense.


Hyper extensions work for me whenever I get that pain down back of leg. Walking a LOT helps too.


Thanks PG and Biker. I’ll give those a try see if they help.

49 today. I only cried a little when I woke up. Cake and ice cream tonight.


Happy Birthday young man ! Wishing you the best


Happy Birthday!


49? Okay son, sit down. There’s this thing called puberty. You’re going to start feeling changes in your body. Don’t worry, it’s perfectly normal. Seriously though, Happy Birthday and many more.


Thank you all for the happy birthdays. Harry, I have been feeling strange lately.

Everything felt heavy.

49? I’m not far behind. Happy birthday.


275 x 3 zerchers are very adequate


Thanks guys.

My son wanted to deadlift so I did the unthinkable and deadlifted 2 days in a row. I’m sure I don’t look graceful but I love jumping around. I can almost get on a 30’’ ‘box’. I can get my feet on it but can’t stand-up.

A late happy birthday. Still laughing from the puberty comment from hel320.


Thanks Biker. I imagine hanging out with Harry would be laughs all day.

There’s a new stone lifting in Ice Land documentary by rogue fitness on YouTube. I’ve watched the first half hour and it’s good.


@brute_fury new stone lifting documentary?


Here are 3 stone lifting documentaries on youtube. All by rogue fitness.


I attended the Stoneland premier in Concord,NH. Bill Crawford (the main character) and 2 of the Scottish guys were there. That Martin dude shouldered a 250 lb stone after the movie.


Steve- the back must be feeling better !


Thanks! I’ll check these out when I get home.


Back is much better. Feeling like a million bucks, Paul.


CL, Stoneland is my favorite of the 3. Hope you enjoy them.
