Like the title says- I'm 5'4", and will be competing in a local strongman competition in about three weeks. Pretty much, the platform sits at about my chin level. In the 3 weeks I've actually been training with strongman implements, I am able to get the stone lapped fairly easily. As one might expect with my height, the top of the loading movement is my sticking point right now. I was going to see if anyone had any specific technique advice for me. Was thinking about trying to "clean" it up and try to put a shoulder under the stone slightly so I can push it up over the ledge.
The stones are the only event in the comp that I'm not confident in. Otherwise, I think I have a good shot at first place within my weight class. Thoughts?
