I understand that the best way to train for atlas stones is to actually train with them. However at the moment I do not have the money or the space for atlas stones. I am aware that elite fitness has the atlas stone trainer, however I was going to use a sleeve on one of my bent bars to do the exact same thing.
My question is, would it be some what comparable to regular atlas stones? Also, if I'm using 300 pounds does that mean I can handle a 300 pound stone? I have never touched an atlas stone by the way.
