1. Atlas Stones
Atlas Stones are basically just big, heavy balls of concrete—and that’s why these staples of strongman training are so effective for building raw brute strength. Unlike barbells and dumbbells, stones and other awkward objects like kegs or barrels are difficult just to get your arms around, let alone manhandle around a gym. And if solid concrete isn’t really your style, you can always spring for an ultra-heavy medicine ball like the Dynamax Atlas or the Rage Fitness Soft Stone, which come in weights up to 250 lbs.
