Dr. William Crawford-Scotland Stone Lifting-#496-Eric Fiorillo Host of the award Winning Podcast Show Motivation and Muscle Welcomes Dr. William Crawford to the Broadcast. Dr. William Crawford is an MD, Strongman, Highland Games Competitor, Stone Lifter, Writer and Speaker. Eric and Bill lead off the show with their favorite subject which is stone lifting! Bill tells Eric how he’s arranged a trip to Scotland with David Webster and Martin Jancsics. These gentlemen will go to places through Scotland and lift stones never witnessed before through the research of David Webster and Peter Martin junior. Bill also told Eric that they will be lifting the Inver and the Dinnie Stones. Bill and his team will be meeting with Jack Shanks. Shanks was the first man to lift the Dinnie Stones since Donald Dinnie himself. Shanks was the first man since Dinnie to lift the stones bare handed without the aid of straps. One of the remote places in Scotland these men were headed to was to lift the stone of Fianna. From that point Bill has the area all mapped out and will be traveling further north to find and document everything for future stone lifting generations. Eric and Bill talk about what he’s doing to get in shape for lifting these famous stones in Scotland. Bill tells Eric he started working his grip first and right away. He tells Eric he knows his hips and back would catch up quickly with the weight he needed to lift to make the trip to Scotland. Bill and Eric get into building supporting strength in your fingers. Bill gives you two exercises to accomplish this. Hands and fingers will always determine how big of a stone you can lift. Always! Eric and Bill address how important back squatting is for stone lifting and the style of squats we use in the power rack. We talk about how we approach this mentally. We ask ourselves these questions before we even get on a plane to Scotland or Iceland. Am I good enough. did I train hard enough and will i lift these stones? Bill describes some of the names of these different stones and why they were lifted. One thing Bill explained fully is he and the other historians will define how theses stones were lifted, the reasoning why and the designation on what it meant at its time of importance to the Clans of Scotland. This is truly one of the most exciting podcasts I’ve ever been a part of. I’m so proud to bring this to are family. Will you lift a heavy stone tonight? Do it!
