In lifting, positioning is everything. Positioning is even more important when you’re lifting heavy, odd objects.
In this video filmed at Hybrid Athletics, Rob Orlando explains that stone lifting requires brute strength, but it also requires technique. You can be an ox and still get owned by a stone if you lift it incorrectly. Conversely, you can focus your strength with efficient technique and moves weights you never dreamed of.
Watch video. Find stone. Lift it. Feel strong.
