How To Make An Atlas Stone (Slater Stone vs Hybrid Stone)

Fantastic video.




This is a great - and thorough, it runs about 37min - video showing construction of DIY atlas stones; using both the Slater Stone and Hybrid Stone moulds (or 'molds' if you prefer). Nice one Alan.

Weighted Dip Basics.I was asked a couple of times during the week about adding weight to dips, so here's a quick tutorial on doing just that : Nice one. Incidentally, the weight can be anything at all (preferably with a hole to feed the chain through) - I frequently use kettlebells here. Whatever's handy.
