stone lift to chest 20 reps (diamond shaped ?200 lb stone)
stone carry 50' (oval shaped ?220 lb stone)
1 farmers carry 200' x 245 lbs (total, not each hand)
It was 24 degrees out and lit only by the stars and 1/4 moon. Everything was frozen to the ground. Luckily it wasn't windy out.
I've found carrying heavy things is as much will power as it is strength. When you have a heavy stone on your chest/stomach its almost impossible to breath. And farmers carries test your forearm pain tolerance.
Brett,I haven't done farmers carries long enough to know if there has been any carry over to deads/squats. I'm not even sure there will be a carry over. I just know they're tough.
