Unleash your inner Strong Man - Three moves with the Atlas Stone

Unleash your inner strong man with the new Atlas Stones from Physical Company. More forgiving and smaller in diameter than the traditional cement stones, Physical Company has given its Atlas Stones a modern twist.  Made of durable, dense vinyl, which is textured to improve grip, they can be used in the gym without risking floor damage and will also stand up to the rigours of outdoor workouts and bootcamp sessions. They are available in a choice of four weights: 15kg, 25kg, 35kg and 45kg.

Atlas Stone training is the ultimate way to build strength in the core, back and legs.  A range of moves can be completed with the Atlas Stone, including Shoulder Lifts, Stone Thrusters, Platform Lifts, Deadlifts and Clean & Press. Take classic moves like lunges, walking lunges and squats to a whole new level with the Atlas Stone.   Go on, you know you want to give it a go.

 

 

Atlas Stone Shouldering

Position your feet wide with the Atlas Stone between your ankle bones. Bend down into a crouch position and wrap your arms around and under the Atlas Stone. Grasp the stone hard. Drive your hips down while pulling the stone into your body towards your groin. Pick the stone up, whilst exploding through the hips to propel the stone upwards and create more momentum. Fire it up to the left shoulder, bracing your core. Hold, then return the stone to the floor. Repeat the action placing the stone on the right shoulder.

Atlas Thrusters

Position your feet wide with the Atlas Stone between your ankle bones. Bend down into a crouch position and wrap your arms around and under the Atlas Stone. Grasp the stone hard. Drive your hips down while pulling the stone into your body towards your groin. Pick the stone up, and explode the hips forward and upward, rolling the stone up your body. Transfer your hands to the side, stand as tall as possible to lift the stone above your head. The result is triple extension: ankles, knees and hips.  Return the stone to the floor.

Platform Lift

NOTE: this exercise needs a stable platform on which to place the Atlas Stone.

Position your feet wide with the Atlas Stone between your ankle bones. Bend down into a crouch position and wrap your arms around and under the Atlas Stone. Grasp the stone hard. Drive your hips down while pulling the stone into your body towards your groin. Pick the stone up, and explode the hips forward and upward, rolling the stone up your body. From the chest, roll the stone onto the platform.  Roll the Atlas Stone off the platform, stepping back to allow ample space for the stone to land safely.
