130lbs on a 53" platform. Any one see any areas I can improve?
Not sure what you are trying to accomplish, but it looks like the first part of the movement is all lower back and no legs. I think you would asking for injury.
Never shall innocent blood be shed, yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river. The Three shall spread their blackened wings and be the vengeful striking hammer of God.
I want to make it as close to atlas stone loading as possible.
Have to agree with BilltheButcher. First part of the lift looks really painful to me...it's actually hurting my back right now. If you google atlas stone loading and watch some of the videos, you'll notice how the only time the lifters use their lower back muscle is to pull up and back to situate the rock in position--their lower backs never become perpendicular to the floor (or parallel to the lift). In your video it looks as if you're pulling straight up with your lower back. Is your back strained after lifting?
I dont think the atlas stones are hard just because they weigh 200 or 300 pounds, but I think its more about the awquardness of the object being lift. Like you said the sandbags are all you have, and I think you lift it much like they do on TV. While their under pressure to get it up, I think they tend to neglect form and just do what needs to be done to get it up.

Thanks for the comments.
I was going more for speed because its light. If it were heavier I would have to slow it down and set it on my lap and lift it from there do you think my techinque would be better if it was heavier?
