Whiskey Costs Money

CL, I’ve made 4 stones. 3 with balls and plaster of Paris and cement. One with an actual mold someone I know had purchased. It’s not too difficult. Just have to take your time. If you decide to make one let me know and I’ll tell you exactly how I made them.


#710

What size balls did you use?


#711

CL, I looked at the slater stone mold size for diameter and weights then and tried to estimate ball size. I have approximately a 14’’, 2 16’’and an 18’’. One of the 16’’ stones I put a small ball in the center to make it lighter.
These are some of the estimated size and weights.
10’’ 42 lbs
12’’ 72
14’’ 116


#712

Okay. That’s what I was thinking. It should be pretty close.


#713

Are you going to carry the stones or try and lift them on to something like strongman comps? If to carry wouldn’t some plain stones be easier?


#714

I would like at least one to load on a platform like a strongman comp. and I want a husafel stone, to carry anything else is just learher bucket seats…lol

Yeah, yeah, I been doing some stuff. Figured out I can probably load a fairly decent sized stone if I was able to whip a 10,000 btu a/c over the top of the microwave and thru the hall. And that bid ass tv up on the shelf in mom’s house.
I have inspired myself! Anyway…

Squat
1x5/105 because apparently math is not my strong suit.
1x5/115
1x5/125
1x5/135
1x3/145
3x1/155 due to my inability to do addition the last one was iffy. I was supposed to start at 115 :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

DB Rows

Tri ext

Well those are pretty small washing machines. I think you could have beaten both of them!


#719

I’ve never worn a belt when deadlifting. Felt it got more in the way than helped.


#720

Add on. Thought of you today. Helped a friend with some work about a mouth ago. He stopped by today and brought me a bottle of Jameson’s Irish Whiskey. I thought, well whiskey don’t always cost money.

Took the day off to take Jed to go see my “favorite” critters! … Uh maybe not! But I lived thru it! Barely. He (the snake guy) was mortified when I told him I had a %100 kill ratio :astonished:

Read through a bit of your workout journal and gathered that you’ve had your heart broken. Keep your head up man, wudbuyuawhiskey/10. Now let’s go lift some iron shall we?
