No Atlas Stones? No problem!

Most would agree that the limiting factor in training for strongman is the equipment.  Let's be honest... there is no substitute for a log press, a husafell stone, or an atlas stone...

Wait. Hold that thought.

Atlas stones: They're big. They're heavy. They are hard to transport unless you're a strongman. They aren't cheap and most are homemade, so your results, experiences, and success may vary. If only there was something that provided the same experience and variability for a fraction of the cost and effort.

Elitefts Coach Clint Darden demonstrates that atlas stone training DOES have a substitute with the Elite Stone Trainer. How do you use this tool? Simple: load it up with bumper plates, slap the included Lock-Jaw collar on the end, and take your posterior chain to new heights of strength development.
