This update offers all the functional strength benefits and practical improvements for using Atlas Stones yourself, with none of the downsides of the original stone forms.

A Strongman Tool with All-Sport Applications
Atlas Stones have always been associated with Strongman competitions, but in recent years, they’ve been adopted by a wide range of athletes—from weightlifters and powerlifters to football players, wrestlers, MMA fighters, and more—as a unique, full-body training tool.
Properly lifting, holding, and loading Atlas Stones not only strengthens the back, glutes, and abs (with minimal spinal compression), but also promotes the extension of the hips, knees and ankles, resulting in greater explosiveness.
Just be sure to select a starting weight increment suited to your own size and level of experience.
Rogue Rubber Atlas Stones
Rogue’s Rubber Atlas Stones feature a cast-iron core construction with a durable, over-moulded rubber exterior and recessed edges to prevent rollaway.
Available in five weight increments (50, 75, 100, 150, and 200 LBS), these exclusive, ready-to-use stones can be ordered a la carte or as part of either of their two pre-configured Rogue sets:
|Set||Contents||Where to Purchase|
|225 lb Set||Includes (1) 50LB, (1) 75LB, (1) 100LB||Rogue|
|450 lb Set||Includes (1) 100LB, (1) 150LB, (1) 200LB||Rogue|
Quality Rogue Construction
Slightly recessed edges reduce the chance of rollaway and provide a bit of added texture, as do the embossed Rogue logos, which are centred around an embossed weight indication on one side.
The surface finish on their Rubber Stones is a bit slippery out of the box, and while it will become more grip-friendly over time, the general slickness helps to create a more accurate facsimile of a traditional stone.
Since it cannot be lifted purely by friction, athletes will need to grab the stone from underneath using their forearms in the “bear hug” style.

Atlas Stone Workout
Try this Stone workout from Rob Orlando.
50 Walking Lunges with a Stone.
If holding the stone at your shoulder, use one that’s 75% of your body weight. If the stone is on your gut use 60%. Do as many sets as necessary.
1. Squat down and wrap your arms around the stone. Deadlift it up to your lap. From there, either roll it to your shoulder or stand up and hold the stone at your gut.
2. Once you’ve secured the stone in position, step forward and lower your body toward the floor until your back knee gently kisses the ground. Keep your upper body tall.
3. Stand up out of the lunge by driving through the heel of your front foot and bring the back foot up to meet the front foot. Repeat for an equal number of reps on each leg.
Once you’ve gotten the hang of it on your dominant shoulder, try the opposite side. It will be much more difficult and require more core stabilization.
