Getting primal at the Scottish Games

April 5, 2014

I did the “stone lift” at the Scottish games today. Yes, that is just like it sounds: you lift the heaviest stone you can onto a chest-height podium. Simple enough.

I maxed out with a 145 lb. lift, as pictured. It was tough, and I was pleased. Then some gangly skinny dork who did not lift weights did the same. Instant humility. So I tried again and lifted 160. Those are surprisingly tough. Just getting it slightly off the ground is the hard part.
