Stone Squat for Strongman?

United Strongmen promoter Jyrki Rantanen told IronMind about “a new event for strongmen/women . . . the ‘Stone Squat.’”   

“In the event the competitors are first shouldering the stone and while holding it up there, perform a deep squat to get a full repetition. 

“In this competition it was done with 40/60-kg stones for lightweight athletes and beginners with a time limit of 2 minutes but I see it might be 1 minute with heavier stones in bigger competitions and it might be varied with max lifts, too,” said Rantanen.
