grip it a rip it.....as Ortmayer says--you have to get a little crazy with stones.
there really isnt much to it, dig you fingers under, squeeze hard with forearms, pull into your lap, from here theres a few different ways..1-- bear hug and front squat it up, or 2--get arms "over" the stone and pop it up, kind of like a kbell swing motion...tacky helps big time...ill try and get some stone vids this sunday...probably wont be very impressive though, as dont hink ive done stones in 2 months, maybe longer
also--Derek is a beast...
