ROBERT: This is what we came boys, these stones right here-- the Dinnie Stones. For our final challenge in Scotland, we're going to try and pick up and walk with the legendary Dinnie Stones. Donald Dinnie was the first super athlete and honestly succeeded in almost anything he tried. These are probably one of the most iconic things in strength history..
NARRATOR: These two legendary Scottish boulders were originally used as counterweights during the construction of the Potarch bridge. In 1860, Donald supposedly carried them 17 feet across the width of that bridge. So how are we going to pick these things up? Supposedly, how he did it was he would pick and kind of, like, hip thrust, drop back down, step forward, pick, drop back down. So it wasn't one continuous walk..
It was more of a up-down, up-down motion. Right. But there is a record for continuous walk, it's a farmer's walk type carry. You pick it at the sides, and it's one continuous walk without dropping them. And the record on that is just a little bit over eight feet. So what are the exact combined weight of these stones? So the big boy here is 414 and 1/2 pounds. The little guy is 318 and 1/2 pounds, with a combined.
Weight of 733 pounds. Jeez. They're awkward. They're big. They're a lot tougher than it looks. A lot of men have come, a lot of men have tried, and a lot of men have failed to even break these things off the ground. If you can even lift the stones, you get your name permanently put in the Dinnie Stones record book..
Let's go get geared up and get after this. - Sounds good. - Cool. Let's do it. All right, guys. Just so you know, this white tape right here is the current world record for the farmer style carry with these stones. Yup OK?.
You carry them in one fluid motion without dropping them, from that line pass here, you own the world record. OK. Let's get it, guys. On you, Obie. Good luck. Ha, ha, get up. Get up! Come on! .
Let's go, Obie. Let's go. Let's go. ROBERT: Ooh. I had to drop. It basically pried open my fingers until it came out of my hands. Ah, my hands are done, no, no. Hands are done? It was like holding 1,000 razor blades digging into your hand..
Thanks, guys. All right. Let's go, Nick. Come on, Nick. Nice. Good job, Nick. Yeah, I measured that..
Come on, Ed. Come on, Ed. Let's go. ROBERT: Up, up, up! There you go, slow. Slow! ED: Holding onto the stones for so long, I can literally feel the flesh in my hands tearing, the skin tearing..
Nice work, dude. Wow. Oh my, look at that. ROBERT: Oh, yeah. Oh my god. My hands are literally on fire. Everything's cracked and creased, and there's blood coming out my fingers..
That was one of the most painful things I've ever had to do in my strongman career. That was genuinely really painful. There are moments in time as a strongman where the world seems to stop because you're presented with a strength challenge that you've heard about your entire life. And the Dinnie Stones has been a feat of strength that's been on my bucket list. Commence. Come on. Let's go..
Up! Come on, B. Brian is attempting to break the world record in the continuous carry of the Dinnie Stones. ROBERT: Let's go, Brian. Come on. - Come on! - Keep it going. Keep it going. - Come on..
You got three feet, Brian. Let's go. Yes! 11 feet, 6 and 1/2 inches. Brian, you just broke the world record for farmers carry on Dinnie Stones. Getting the opportunity to come to Scotland, take on the Dinnie Stones, that's something I'll never.
Forget for the rest of my life. I'm at a loss for words, Brian. That's one of the coolest things I've ever seen. BRIAN: Yeah. - That was really cool, man BRIAN: I appreciate that, man. Well done, Brian. Thank you, guys. Since all four of us successfully lifted the Dinnie Stones, we got invited by the official record keeper to permanently ink our names in the record book..
Brian, you have an entry for a full lift, but you also have lift for a farmer's lift and carry. All right. So that is the world record. That's 11 feet and 6 and 1/2 inches. Awesome. Yeah, buddy. That was so cool. Good job, buddy. Thanks, brother..
That book is going to stay with those stones forever, so anybody 50, 100 years from now can look back and see my name in there and what I accomplished with those stones. All right. You guys ready to eat? Always. Yeah.
