The Dinnie Stones

Just seen this story on the news. Some Scottish strongman carrying fabled stone over a bridge.

Thought I would share

Here is another link to the Dinnie stones and a bunch of other ones

I train with 3 of the guys who have lifted the dinnie stones, and the 4th guy ever to press the inver stone above his head.

Hope to lift the dinnies soon myself.

i like how half of those guys were doing it in shirt and tie

The Dinnies are just up the road from me. Tried to lift them a few years back, just for a laugh. Not a feckin’ chance :confused:

I will eventually get over there and take a shot at them too. I’ve competed with a few guys who have lifted them (USAWA members) and they said the experience is unforgetable.

One of my training partners (Travis Willingham) went last year and lifted them unassisted. I will do this one day.

Small world Ben. I met Travis at a grip contest in KC last year. He came to the contest with Josh Dale.
