    stones: get large field stones

    hercules hold: just use static side raise holds. That, and you can jimmy something w/ the cable crossover+banded resistance when you get very strong

    you can't really replicate fingal fingers. You should need to either, since 99% of the time you won't see an AM contest w/ this apparatus in it.

        just do a side raise, and hold it in the top position for max time.

          You can replicate stones also by loading plates on the end of a BB and "lap" them.

          Hercules hold is all grip, not shoulders... a static side raise won't do shit for this event.

          Replicate it by using a cable crossover machine or both side of a cable machine.

            You can also replicate stones but taking the end part off an olympic bar and loading that up then with a lock tight collar,I`ve seen this somewhere but can`t remember.
            Limitations are set in the limited mind

              Elite FTS sells them, but they're UBER expensive.

                that thing is a ripoff.

                Just unscrew the endcap on a cheap cap barbell. Same thing, but a lot cheaper.
