Erik not only loves the administration of training to others but also is a fitness buff himself. A lifetime goal for Erik McCay, who is of Scottish heritage, has been to pick up the ‘Dinnie Stones.’

The Dinnie Stones are two giant granite stones made famous by the Scott strongman Donald Dinnie. In 1860 he carried the stones across the width of Potarch Bridge in Potarch, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The smaller of the two stones weighs 318 lbs 8 oz. and the larger 414 lbs 8 oz.

Let alone carrying them, lifting them is an unbelievable feat only accomplished by a few strongmen. McCay after extensive personal transformation and strength training is currently in Scotland to make an attempt at becoming one of the few to be able to attain this achievement.

In preparation, one of the tools Erik has used to enhance his unique strength has been training on the Pendulum Squat Pro XT. The XT has an extended additional loading point added to the Pendulum Squat Pro, which intensifies the experience of squatting. 

The following video is McCay lifting over 900 pounds for 2 reps as he continued to prepare for his adventure.
