I've been playing around with this idea for a while now - simple enough idea, move 1000 pounds 1000 feet. Break it up however you need too - 125 pounds 8000 feet, 500 pounds 2000 feet, whatever. In any case, the end goal is the same - move 1000 pounds 1000 feet. I guess it'd be sorta like the Inman mile at any kinda reasonable weight. Anyone ever done something like this?

Tim, check the latest Painstorm for a similar concept with a slightly nastier twist. Not only do you have to shift a load for half a mile, you also have to get it over your head to the tune of 10,000lb.

This was a tough one. I used 50lb dumbbells. My buddy used a 100lb bar carried on his back. I think that the Farmers Walk with the dumbbells made the workout much harder. Good Luck.

Ryan.

Speaking of different exercises. I went to a rock quarry and got 9 different sized stones and rocks. I weighed them and made sure I had a 5,10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 96 lbs stones, all different shapes too, some flat, round etc. I marked off fifty yard on a 20 degree rising grade. Then I made up some rules. You toss the 5 pounder as far as you can up the hill, then grab the next size up, the 10 lb. You toss it up the hill but it must go past the 5 before you can advance and throw the next size up. Every size up including the 96 lb must go past the 5 before you can advance the 5 any farther. You can throw each stone as many times as you want until it goes past the 5, the heavier the stone the more throws it will take to get it past the five. All stones must be lifted at least knee high to qualify as a complete throw. It will take about three rounds of moving all stones to get past 50 yards. It is done for time, and I can guarantee one bad a.. workout.

Tim, I need to apologize to you. After I posted my message, I realized I kind of broke in on your post. Sorry. Milton
