Inspired by Strength

Shouldering an atlas stone is one of my favorite lifts. It starts from the pick, to the lap, to the chest, to one side, and without the other hand for stabilization.

My first strongman event I ever watched on tv had Jon Pall Sigmarsson (RIP 01/16/1993) and Bill Kazmaier shouldering atlas stones at the Worlds Strongest Man.

It was incredible as a kid and just as incredible to this day to see the strongest men in the world compete in that event. These two inspired me from that day forward to be as strong as personally possible.
