    Thank you for that. I need more large unsightly rocks in my backyard. My neighbors i think have officially tried to get me expelled from the neighborhood.

    Just throw one of your big rocks at them.

    In any event, I think that's one of the better sites for learning to make an atlas stone. no others that I've seen have pictures step by step.

    There's this one too. Maybe I can start a Kettlebell rip off and sell the book for millions. This is better then the sand bag thing.

    Just arrange them in a half circle, put a tv in the middle, and tell your neighbors you're just having friends over for the game. I'm sure they'll understand.

    This thread is by far the highlight of my day so far. My neighbors are going to hate me even more.

    I actually went and bought one of those big exercise ball things a couple of weeks ago and filled it with water and left it in my garden, Its so much fun to lift and it only cost me 4 quid. But, I really have to resist the urge to put a sodding great concrete boulder in my garde ncos' I thyink my family would freak out.
