The Stone Roller measures
18" long
17" diameter
the bar protrudes 7" out each end.

Hope this helps

David have you tried to lift it using the bars on each end like a deadlift or is it too awkward to get into a good position?
Thanks

Mark,
Yes, that is one of the feats too.
Chris Lowe got a rep, and a hard one at that. He said it was tough, and he's a 260k for reps Deadlifter.

Nick has nearly done it, and I've got it close too.
It is a massive weight/object dragging up your legs.
Both Chris and Nick too allowed the bar to roll into their fingertips and thus roll the roller up the thighs. Chris lost skin and left blood on the bar. I have too many comps this year to try this style.
But I hope it will be there soon.

Thanks for the reply David, my deadlift is only 240k or so at the moment so abit more work yet, but I would love to try that challenge.I think i could mock up a roller with a a steel bar and weights loaded on the middle to help train for it
Thanks

Well Mark, the challenge is here ready for you.
Just give us a nod when you want to visit.
Yeah, put your 20k discs in the centre of the bar (maybe a 50mm bar), and fasten them together with collars, and see how it feels.

Thanks David will do.I think the rim top will help aswell to keep the roller from coming out of the hands.
Cheers
