Atlas Stones in Milwaukee/Chicago Area

I am selling 14" and 16" atlas stones. The 14" stones weigh about 115# and the 16" stones weigh about 175#. That can also be increased/decreased for an additional charge (need to use special inserts).

They are made with a professional grade high impact and crack resistant concrete that exceeds ASTM C-387 requirements, and is reinforced with synthetic fiber for additional strength. Guaranteed not to break.

Asking $0.50 per pound, and I can deliver.

Re: Atlas Stones in Milwaukee/Chicago Area

I'm definitely intersted in the #115 stone.
Probably the 175 too.

I'm 5'6" and weight 175. I deadlift around 400. Do you think I'll be able to manipulate the 175?

I live about 90 minutes away from Milwaukee in the NW subs of Chicago.

PM me for details.

Yes you'll outgrow the 175 pretty quick

Hey Bob, PM just sent. You should have no problem at all with the 175 lb stone.

Re: Atlas Stones in Milwaukee/Chicago Area

spend some time on that 115# stone though. Get some volume to develop that low back. Stones are a bit more strenuous on the back due to the arch in the back.

Seriously? A 115 stone for a 400lb deadlifter? NAS contests start at a 220 stone for the lightweights typically...+

Re: Atlas Stones in Milwaukee/Chicago Area

If you have never used one it's certainly not a bad idea to play around with lighter stones at least to get a feel for it. Trying to lift even a 115 lb stone can be intimidating the first time! Once you get the hang of them, then go for it!

Re: Atlas Stones in Milwaukee/Chicago Area

Definitely will take some time to get used to the 175. My DL is 465 and I had a hard time picking up a 175 this weekend. All technique at the start it seems. I think the 115 would be good for you to learn technique and then the 175 would be good once you get the hang of it..... and a heavier one in a few months.

Then I'll probably get both. Plus I need some lawn decor.
