Trying to get that Husafell stone of the ground. It definitely doesn’t look like a 186 kg stone but it sure feels like it. “The stone has been used as a test of strength by either simply lifting the stone, or by lifting and carrying the stone around the goat pen where it is located. The Husafell Stone is also named Kviahellan (pen slab) by pastor Snorri, who used the stone as a door to his sheep pen. The test to achieve fullsterkur (“full-strong”) status is to lift the stone up and carry it the 50 metres around the perimeter of the goat pen. Successfully walking the full distance around the pen is considered a widely recognized feat of strength in the field of stone carrying, and is referred to as achieving fullsterkur status.” #husafellstone @crossfit @reebok

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
