Odd Object Lift

Is there a particular way of lifting an object over your head that is to cumbersome to Clean or Snatch and to heavy to High Pull?

You Deadlift it to waist
You can Shoulder press it to overhead
But how do you get it to chest?

I have an idea of how I would do it, but I imagine there is some specifically named and technique-ed lift that maybe the odd object lifting guys use?

Sean

MAYBE…
Deadlift to Waist
Bend down to on one knee
Place object on knee
Bend at waist to get ‘under’ object
Lung Squat up to Chest
Shoulder Press?

Atlas stone lifting and/or continental clean and press


And seriously dude... stop making so many new threads. At least some of them can be answered by using the search button. I'll give you credit... I have NOT seen this one before though.

Re: Odd Object Lift

Thanks Steve,

I search for about 5 minutes for each question, If I can't find the answer I have to assume that it's either not here, or is 'hidden'.

Re: Odd Object Lift

Describe an object that you can not do some semblance of a clean with. If it's anything you could set on your knee and get your shoulder under, then you can probably clean it. I can't think of anything that a static mechanism (other than setting it, or propping it on some stationary object) that would be more effective than cleaning it.

Re: Odd Object Lift

If you can deadlift it to your waist you can always then squat down halfway so it's then on your lap and hug it to your chest from there.

I've done this all my life moving heavy stuff but have never bothered to analyze technique.
