as long as the wobble doesn't throw off your pace it's all good if you don't get tweaked anyplace from it

that's a great casting on the stone ... are you planning to use any elevated pedestals ? differing heights ?

I love strongman stuff .. this is a cool thread .. you've made excellent implements  Smiley

Looks great !!
What was that like ? .. it's gotta be a bit tough trying to get a good hold .. looks like it would be hard trying to keep it from rolling away from your grip .. I would guess it's where forearm strength comes in ?

I had to cover up the grunts and groans... Sad After watching the pros do it I realize that I am dipping my body way too low at the start. All technique.

Great job on that stone and the logs dude!!!

Wobble on the yoke, probably a couple of things. If your yoke is not sturdy it will make the wobble worse, that's first. Second, your core is probably weak and it's just not used to the load. The only way to get better at heavy yoke is to train it. Try just picks and holds with a weight that is above what you can walk with. Hold it for as long as possible. Also do longer runs with lighter weight to get used to the event and moving. Good luck, keep going!

Yeah I found that lightening the load and doing longer runs, also putting my hands on the uprights has helped quite a bit.
